On May 4th at 6:30pm, the Journey Museum in Rapid City will host An Inconvenient Truth: The history behind the Sioux San lands and West Rapid City. According to KOTA News, the presentation began with an investigation into students who died and were buried at the Rapid City Indian School where The Rapid City Indian Health Service (Sioux San) now stands. The investigation led researchers to delve deeper into the history of the land in the area, in addition to reconnecting families with the children who attended and are buried on the Sioux San lands.
In the 1970s, Rapid City looked at creating a cultural park and museum near Sioux San. An archaeological consultation turned up nothing of historical or cultural note in the area examined. The report comes from the wider Proposed Sioux Indian cultural center, Rapid City, South Dakota : environmental assessment memorandum available in the Rapid City Public Library's local history room.
