Celebrating the American buffalo

On today's show...

U.S. Rep. Dusty Johnson says he's been hard at work trying to come to a deal to avert a government shutdown. He speaks with SDPB's Lee Strubinger about who gets harmed when the government shuts down and the importance of compromise.

Jennifer Irving spent a long time contemplating what she wanted the Honoring Thathanka Oyate festival to look like. She wanted it to be a celebration.

But most importantly, she wanted it to explore the significance of the buffalo and the importance of revitalizing cultural practices related to the animal.

Irving is vice president of communications and marketing at Maȟpíya Lúta (Red Cloud Indian School). She joined In the Moment to preview the festival and dive into buffalo revitalization.

According to Connie Goddard, William Beadle is one of the founders of the nation's education system. We catch up with the writer and historian about her research into his story and legacy.
