Lakota Star Knowledge-Fallen Stars and Devil's Tower

Sep 17, 2018
Chynna Lockett

Cultures around the world have passed down their own versions of stories about stars and creation. Lakota people had regionally based beliefs called Star Knowledge. In these stories, some stars watch over people and keep them safe. One shares the Lakota creation tale for what many now call Devil’s Tower.

Craig Howe is the Director of the Center for American Indian Research and Native Studies. The story of a Lakota hero begins with a pregnant woman who had fallen to Earth from the star world and died.

It’s been just over 50-years since the six cheerleaders from Rapid City High School tragically died in a plane crash as they were coming home from the boys state basketball tournament in the spring of 1968. On Sunday, a new memorial was unveiled at Rapid City Central high school to honor the lives lost five decades ago.

Sue Rivkin-Schick is a former classmate to some of the cheerleaders who lost their lives. She said when she remembers the six girls, she doesn’t just think of them as cheerleaders.

South Dakota is receiving more than $8 million from a California lawsuit against Volkswagen. The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources is handling disbursements of the state's share of the settlement. Some of the money will land in Rapid City. In response, the Rapid City Standing Committee on Sustainability is now open to public comments on how it should be spent. SDPB's Victoria Wicks learned more at a public presentation held this weekend.
