October is also time for the Black Hills Powwow - 2010 marks the 24th year for this annual event!
Prairie Edge is a proud sponsor of the Black Hills Powwow, many of our friends, family and co-workers participate in this exciting event. What makes this year even more exciting is the proclamation honoring the Year of Reconciliation by proclaiming 2010 as the Year of Unity.
Through the guidance and leadership of the late Governor Mickelson,Tim Giago (Oglala/Lakota), Governor Mike Rounds and numerous key Rapid City business men, women and tribal people, this proclamation was made official on February 19, 2010 in the State Capitol Rotunda in Pierre, South Dakota by Governor Rounds.
So let's get ready to DANCE ...
