Recognizing the 'Good Men' of Bon Homme County

Zephier Rencontre, a French trader who established a trading post along the Missouri River in 1828.

This interview is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

If you live in South Dakota you are woven into a tapestry of shared history.

Today we add to our historical understanding of a place that is today called Bon Homme country. Skuya Zephier is a direct descendent of one of the "good men" of the area for which the region might be named. We talk with Zephier about her blog post inspired by our recent conversation with Robert Foley

On In the Moment, we take you back to the late 1700s to early 1800s when French fur traders journeyed the Missouri River and made homes and families.
