Good Earth State Park at Blood Run dedicated

A new South Dakota state park was dedicated July 19 at Blood Run, which served as an important trading and gathering place for Native Americans from 1350 to 1700 A.D. The Omaha Tribe’s Cultural Preservation Officer, Calvin Harlan, was present along with former Vice-Chairwoman Wynema Morris. Through the work of the TCPO, the Omaha Tribe was able to participate in the decision making process for the new park.
