Pipestone National Monument Guest Speaker Series
Pipestone National Monument announces the first of its 2018’s Guest Speaker Series at the Pipestone Performing Arts Center, 104 East Main Street, Pipestone, Minnesota, on Friday, April 20, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Kelly Looking Horse’s presentation is titled “Lakota Survival Story.” Mr. Looking Horse will share his knowledge of Lakota history, song, drumming, and dance as part of the Pipestone National Monument’s American Indian Education Series, intended to increase understanding of and appreciation for American Indian culture. If you enjoyed any of the previous guest speaker events, please join us again. The event is free and open to the general public.
Lakota artist, Kelly Looking Horse, is from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. He is the founder and CEO of Lakota Red Nations, a company that presents knowledge about Lakota values and culture for educational programs. He is a charismatic public speaker, so expect his presentation to be vibrant and have opportunities for audience participation. He also specializes in crafting chokecherry dreamcatchers, leather pouches, and drums and will use or show people examples of these.
