LCT [Lakota Country Times] CORRESPONDENT
Expert horsemen and horsewomen alike, converged on Kiza Park this past weekend to compete in various races at the annual Victory Day Horse Races.
Sponsored by the White Plume Tiospaye, this event is to celebrate the victory at Little Big Horn (aka Greasy Grass Battle). The gathering brings together horse lovers of all ages to promote cultural identity and revitalization.
"The Lakota and allies from the Arapahoe and Cheyenne nations joined forces at the Greasy Grass to take down Custer and the U.S. 7th Calvary. Our ancestors taught us that when we work together, we can accomplish great things. We instill this in our youth," stated Alex White Plume.
