Honoring elders and preserving Lakota identity

This segment is from SDPB's monthly news program, South Dakota Focus, hosted by Jackie Hendry.

On the Cheyenne River Reservation, The Rez Runner program began in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The free service brings supplies to elders in the community at no cost.

SDPB's Richard Two Bulls explores how this service also preserves the cultural identity and history of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe in this month's installment of Good Neighbors.
