    Travel and Akta Lakota Museum

    May 21, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 8 °C

    Today, we left Milwaukee bright and early. We got to see a beautiful sunrise as we headed west out of town. We traveled most of the day before stopping at the Akta Lakota Museum & Cultural Center in Chamberlain, South Dakota. The museum is housed at St. Joseph's Indian School, which is run by the Priests of the Sacred Heart. Here, we toured an exhibit detailing the history, culture and traditions of the Lakota people. It was a fascinating learning experience. On a side note, we learned the meaning for the word "Kinnikinnic". According to a display in the museum, tobacco would be "mixed with sumac leaves and the dried inner bark of red alder, dogwood, or red willow." Living in Milwaukee, I've always wondered what this term means. Now, I know. We spent a couple hours at the museum before heading to Pierre to spend the night.Read more

    Il est de plus en plus difficile de trouver du réseau dans ces petits villages. Actuellement, en direct du Mcdo du coin !
    Nous ne sommes qu'à quelques heures du Mount Rushmore (4h), nous y arriverons sûrement demain dans l'après-midi. Pour le moment, il est temps de laver Monsieur MegaFord tueur d'insectes et de trouver un Walmart pour la nuit.

    It's starting to be more and more difficult to find good Internet connection in these small towns.
    We are now live from the Mcdonald of the village.
    We are only 4 hours away from Mount Rushmore, we will probably be there tomorrow afternoon.
    For now, let's wash Mister MegaFord insects killer and find a Walmart for the night.

    c'est vrai que l'on prend vite les mauvaises habitudes d'avoir tes chouettes résumés des journées et les photos ! hi hi. Pour la lessive, essayez de mettre les habits directement sur Monsieur MegaFord quand vous le lavez, ça doit être pas mal non plus. Bonne suite de trajet les Loulous et gros bisous.
