2018 CGH Scholars in South Dakota
2018 CGH Richard & Nancy Guerrant CGH Scholars

With cultural differences constantly present, our group has learned so much about the history and culture of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate tribe. Over the weekend, we traveled 2 hours south of our home base to an annual traditional powwow. Members of the Sioux tribe from all over the Midwest and Canada were present. Dances and songs were performed, including a tribute to the community of Native American armed forces veterans.

A local family has opened their home to me for the duration of our time here. I have enjoyed getting to know this family, their stories, and the challenges they face. Living with a family and spending time in their home has provided me with a glimpse of their place in time and within this country.

As a student and academic who is greatly interested in cultural differences and similarities, the experiences I have had have been nothing short of eye-opening. With as much preparation, reading and researching as you can do, you’re never really ready for that cultural shift, even within your own country.
