Protesters march on Rapid City Hall for racial equality

Those of you unfamiliar with Native American history…as told by them, not white folk…I would highly recommend Wilma Pearl Mankiller’s autobiography, “Mankiller”. She is fair in her book about Cherokee and Native American history and portrays the depth of their history that I did not get in history class. I have the highest regard for Chief Mankiller, as she organized the Bell water project that gave them back some of the pride, community, and self-sufficiency that had been beaten out of them.
