Racial tensions move Native celebration from Rapid City

Worried about a federal investigation, the GOP-owned South Dakota Supreme Court has reinstated some Indian child sex abuse claims (pdf) against the Church of the Holy Roman Kiddie Diddlers.
With racial relations in Rapid City under some tension after past events, the 32nd annual Lakota Omniciye Wacipi could not have come at a better time. The word Wacipi, meaning pow wow, is a spiritual celebration that brings together all generations to draw from the past and design the future through education of youth through tradition.

Spearfish boy, Mato Standing High (Rosebud Lakota), attorney/consultant and Karin Eagle of Lakota Country Times are participating in the activities.

Citing contract obligations, organizers of the Lakota Nation Invitational have voted to keep the event in Rapid City for one more year.
