The Dacotah Territory International Visitors Program is hosting a delegation of religious leaders under the auspices of the U.S. State Department's International Visitor Leadership Program. One of the items on their agenda was to visit with people on the Pine Ridge Reservation to share ideas and bring back ideas for their own indigenous people and regions.

SDPB's Lori Walsh visits with Yasin Dwyer, a Muslim chaplain at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, and Pam Akarapisan, head of the Southeast Asian Studies and Director of Life-Long Learning Programs in the Office of International Affairs at Payap University in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
