Celebrating Native American Day


Our community is rich in Native American culture and history. Every year they dress in traditional regalia, and bring their music and dance to the streets of Rapid City, for our community's annual Native American Day parade. Wild Idea Buffalo Co. has participated over the years. Our "this year entry" was for the Rez Car competition, with our ranch tour outfit, "The Zeburban". We didn't place, but we had a lot of fun sharing in the day. Here are a few photos of the faces of Lakota Country and our crew with our entry.

    I Love Rapid City!! I especially loved all the Native American culture all around! When we visited, I felt I was home!! Have missed this town ever since. Planning on returning to Rapid City in 2018….cannot wait!! Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos.

    I find it encouraging to see Native Americans celebrating a culture we (immigrant Europeans) tried so hard to destroy. Rapid City, Wambli, Lakota Sioux remind me of “In the Spirit of Crazy Horse” and by extension “The Contract Surgeon.” Good for you guys to participate enthusiastically!

    Wonderful! Our local Indians should do the same. I will suggest it.
    Congratulations on your parade!
