Badlands & Robert Yellowhawk

 

*Exploring the Badlands

*Wall Drug—offering free water and 5-cent coffee in the 1930's rocketed this mega-store to a modern

tourist haven. Free bumper stickers help, too!

*Journey Museum, Rapid City—our group was divided into two entities and had to imagine we were packing our conestoga wagon with necessities for the trip out West and survival after we arrived.

*An evening with Robert Yellowhawk—stories, songs, and dance—can you believe that it took him and his wife a year to make his dance outfit? Needing to be a registered member of a Native American Tribe (his is Dakota Sioux) he could apply to the government for an eagle. After a 5- year wait it was shipped to him frozen.
