The 'March For Our Children' in Pierre

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

South Dakota educators and policy-makers are continuing to adjust the state's social studies standards. The process sets minimum requirements for educating South Dakota students.

But conflicting ideas about the role of Native American history and culture in those standards has delayed that process.

In September, hundreds marched in Pierre to protest what they called the erasure of their legacy.
