Journey Museum and Learning Center

The history of bison in North America isn't just the story of an indigenous animal. Its existence is tied politically, economically, and spiritually to the indigenous people.

This story is told in a traveling exhibit at the Journey Museum in Rapid City. The exhibit opened with a reception this weekend. "Bison" is on display through Oct. 14.

The traveling exhibit was created by the Kauffman Museum in Kansas, in conjunction with the National Buffalo Foundation.

The Hiawatha Indian Insane Asylum at Canton opened in 1902 and operated for more than 30 years. The facility housed indigenous people from across the country who were deemed insane for rebelling against white rule.

Two South Dakotans have been giving presentations for years to call attention to this piece of state and national history.

On Friday evening, they'll speak with a Rapid City audience at the Journey Museum.
