Exploring the tools of the humanities

SDPB’s C.J. Keene plots the journey of a sacred collection coming home to South Dakota — and the friendship that led to its repatriation.

We take a look at why the governor is banned from several reservations. SDPB’s Lee Strubinger reports on the background and history behind the bans.

Strubinger also brings us his interview with U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds. They discuss global relations, global conflicts and the United States' place on the world stage.

The chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities is visiting South Dakota to speak with author Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve.

We go back to our December 2019 interview with the writer to learn about the importance of honest representation of Native Americans in children's books.

Plus, Chair Shelly Lowe spoke with us ahead of her visit. We dive into the tools of the humanities, particularly during an election year.
