Indigenous Australian exchange group tours SD reservations
This interview originally aired on In the Moment on SDPB Radio.
From Sept. 12 to 30, the Australia-USA Wiradjuri/Oceti Sakowin Rotary Group Study Exchange is touring seven Native American reservations.
The group will get the full South Dakota experience in both small and larger communities. They're bypassing hotels and staying in South Dakotans’ homes.
The program focuses on what they’re taking with them back to Australia — but also what they’re leaving here.
Linda Peterson is a member of the Rapid City Rushmore Rotary, which is leading and hosting the group. She joins In the Moment with an overview of the program.
