BCW CEO Don Southerton Featured in New Book
Just when you thought I was only an expert on Korea…one of my published articles on American West history has been featured in a new book—The Sioux in South Dakota History. My work is one of 13 essays on the Sioux Indians. Like my current academic focus on Korea, this article looks back into early twentieth century cultural interactions—in this case between Anglos and the Lakota Sioux. BTW My mother was raised and her parent's homesteaded in rural South Dakota in the 1920s on land bordering the Lakota Pine Ridge Reservation.
In five themed sections, the book examines the tremendous changes the Sioux experienced during the twentieth century.
The book is available though South Dakota Historic Society Press at:
