Rapid City Indian Boarding School

Chynna Lockett

A memorial honoring children who died in the Rapid City Indian Boarding School was held on Native American Day. Organizers spent years researching the facility’s history. This event is one way to acknowledge the findings with the community. 

 

It takes nine minutes for Heather Dawn Thompson to read the names of 45 deceased children. 

“Ida Logan, Oglala Sioux, age 15, December 15th, 1918. Infant Naomi Goings, Sioux, unknown, August 6th, 1920.”
