In this episode, we speak with Historian Sean Flynn from Dakota Wesleyan University about his biography on Ben Reifel. How does a boy born into poverty on the Rosebud Reservation become a man who advocates for Indian education and an Indian policy that is, "Without Reservation"?

I hope you'll join us for this discussion on how one South Dakota leader sought to manage the challenges of two different cultures.
