How can research help South Dakota’s tribal communities? That’s the question being addressed this week during a symposium in Eagle Butte. “Researching, Restoring and Rebuilding Our Oyate for a Longer Life” is the theme of the symposium. The event features presentations from researchers from Cheyenne River and beyond. It takes place on Wednesday, March 18 at Oglala Lakota College-Cheyenne River College Center.

The symposium is co-hosted by Missouri Breaks Industries Research, Inc. The organization focuses on Native American health research to help improve healthcare policy within the Native American communities. Missouri Breaks manager Marcia O’Leary and research director Joseph Yracheta joined Dakota Midday and discussed the symposium and the importance of local research.
