South Dakota Celebrates Native American Day

October 8, 2012, 7:15 AM


It's Columbus Day in the United States, but it's Native American Day in South Dakota.

The state Legislature in 1990 approved the change proposed by then-Gov. George Mickelson. South Dakota is the only state that celebrates Native American Day on Columbus Day.

Dani Daugherty grew up on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. She says Native American Day is a time to recognize the resiliency and the contributions of native peoples.

But others have mixed feelings. Standing Rock Sioux member Gordon Tree Trop says he remembers being teased by classmates when he was growing up because he had his "own day."
