This Monday morning beginning at 10 in downtown Sioux Falls, the Native American Day parade takes place.

In 1990, Tim Giago of the Native Sun News Today convinced then governor George S. Mickelson to make Native American Day a state holiday.

The theme is "Honoring our Elders" where Tim Giago is going to be the Grand Marshall.

He joined In The Moment with a preview of the celebration.

Newspaper publisher and columnist Tim Giago believes it's time to re-imagine the site of the Wounded Knee Massacre as a place to heal wounds, memorialize the dead, and honor the living. He's raising money to purchase 40 acres of land adjacent to the burial site. He joins us from SDPB's Black Hills Bureau.

25 years ago, Oglala Lakota newspaper publisher Tim Giago wrote a column challenging then-Governor George Mickelson to proclaim 1990 a Year of Reconciliation to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Wounded Knee. That same year he wrote an editorial calling for the state to change Columbus Day to Native American Day. In an interview for Dakota Midday, Giago reflects on the last 25 years and the current state of race relations in South Dakota.
