Playing Games Sports have always played a role in the lives of human beings. This was true of the early Native Americans who lived in this region, and it was true of our earliest settlers.

This program explores the role of sports, both professional and amateur, in our state's history. For a rural state, South Dakota has produced a number of world-class athletes. This episode of Dakota Pathways takes a look at the ins and outs of a wide variety of sports in South Dakota.
