Oyate Today

SDPB1: Sunday, March 24, Noon (11am MT)

Pennington County Sheriff Kevin Thom and Pennington County State’s Attorney Mark Vargo discuss a MacArthur Foundation grant the county is implementing. The four-part program includes outreach to tribes. Officials hope it addresses congestion in the legal system due to high numbers of meth arrests.

Oyate Today is produced by Native Sun News Today publisher Tim Giago (Oglala Lakota) and Jackie Giago and is filmed at Prairie Edge in downtown Rapid City. Oyate Today is a 30-minute interview program on the history and living culture of indigenous people in the Northern Plains.
