Pressler Honors One Feather At South Dakota Wake

August 28, 2014, 5:39 AM

PINE RIDGE, SD -

Independent U.S. Senate candidate Larry Pressler has joined mourners in South Dakota to honor legendary Oglala Sioux leader and former tribal president Gerald One Feather, who died last week.

One Feather's widow presented Pressler with a tribal star quilt during funeral proceedings Wednesday. She says it recognizes Pressler's work on behalf of Native Americans during his 22 years in Congress. Pressler is a former Republican and served two House terms followed by three Senate terms from 1975 to 1997.

He says his friend's life would inspire him to legislate the expansion of tribal community colleges if he is elected.

One Feather died at age 76 after a massive stroke.

Pressler, former Republican Gov. Mike Rounds, Democrat Rick Weiland and independent Gordon Howie are seeking the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Tim Johnson.
