Spoiler title

[0:54] Alright welcome to episode 30 of the urban Indians podcast on your host Gabriel Knight Shields joined by Char and it’s been a long time since you’ve had carry on the show so thanks for being gay.
And I got Matthew.
Being awesome,
I normally record on Sundays today is Thursday night we all have prior engagements this weekend so we are unable to record so it’s a little bit early but,
didn’t want to talk about,
Native American and phrases coming up here and I’m sure you’re like sort of heading that up want you,
what’s a little bit about that,
so this will be the first Native American Day Parade ever in Sioux Falls on which is really cool when you think about that.
Not a lot goes on here for I feel like native people and so this will give opportunity for you know.
Native you too too kind of like be creative in the floats and idea that they’re going to have and then.
Be able to mingle and I’m sure people will be able to handle talk and do all that so I think it’s really awesome.
Can’t wait to show our culture in a wayward.

[2:20] People haven’t seen before in Sioux Falls and so hopefully people feel comfortable enough to like a tendon.

[2:28] Open to everybody people coming from all over so yeah yeah yeah so there’s like,
the biggest thing is like Kim Gallego keep the Grand Marshal and he’ll be heading on the parade kicking that off,
and she’s the one who originally he was a person who switched it back in like 1999 t.
Columbus Day and so he was the one who pushed for it to be Native American day and was successful on that so it’s huge that he’s able to kick off the parade in Sioux Falls on my Netflix huge,
and then on the Dakota 38 + 2 Riders will be here,
what you like if you don’t know what they do Google I’m so they pretty much take a ride you know in remembrance and honor is all those back on.
The word hanged enough Minnesota so after the Dakota war of 1862.

[3:40] Stay right out from Crow Creek all the way to Mankato I think that’s like that 12 gauge on your phone.
Yeah it’s it’s really lengthy I know like someone who reached out to me before and I like do you want to ride a horse from.
Or what is awesome they able to do that.
The guy has work at morning they will take that many days off.
12 days is a long time to do all that, I think people host them to as well it’ll showing their Style.

[4:17] Even though I don’t have that off the top of my head.
Oh they go all the way to wrap just saying I’m trying to compare the distance what is probably like.
Less than that and they also taking like a back road route or not following Interstate know it’s less than that.
Thank you for your dog 1990.

[4:48] Are the state proclaimed Columbus Day Native American day but Sioux Falls started it last year that’s what we went to write.
Yeah yeah but I just ate like you think that they would acknowledge it but I guess who falls is always delete and they do what they want.
Yeah that’s right I missed it I came late cuz it was so quick.
Yeah it was that what we went to the car.
Town hall or whatever it was,
yeah something like that.

[5:39] Yeah I think it was in September October crazy.
Jennifer white and a broken leg.
Jerry Van.
Yeah yeah,
so yeah so don’t be there but there’s like a bunch of tribal schools that will be rapping and that’s really cool fortunately like Sioux Falls schools are still in session and because of that you know.

[6:20] Are hoping you know you supposed to be in attendance but we kind of are taking into account that you know because.
True. There might be an American holiday so.
I know that like an elementary school here in Sioux Falls all of their 4th and 5th graders will be in attendance to high schools their Native American Connections programs are going to have a float in the parade,
and so there’s definitely exception since I don’t know it’s definitely the teachers moving that forward with the principles and having those discussions so hopefully other school is kind of take my follow lead with that,
hopefully we’ll see you more I reached out to Whittier and Washington and George McGovern cuz George McGovern in Whittier had the most native students by far.

[7:14] From middle schools in South are not that it’s going to be really disappointing.

[7:20] I want some how many floats are really hard to like the original push without paper form that went to tribal.
The kids are at Richards on West 3rd and so a lot of them are mailing them in and so you know that’s really slow process but right now I’m that you can just fill out online,
we have about 14 she’s a good number because I know we have more because,
yeah I just got to get the paper form so then I can type it in and create that list to make sure we’re keeping track of everybody is really cool you’re part of that cuz of your that’s your job at Stanford coordinator,
I’m a program coordinator for the summer undergraduate research experience but.
Come out to Richie because I mean he’s the one who kind of heat the main like person on this organizing this and.

[8:24] I got on board and I’m just like what my life is all about connecting with people and creating contacts so all I’ve been doing really the last month is getting in touch with people in my cave is the opportunity to like.
Let your students be creative and,
in a showcase their culture and be proud of like who they are in their history and stuff like that but also for organizations that work with Native American and even political parties we’ve talked to them.
Our flyer just went out yesterday and so I feel like that’s the final big push right there I’m kind of shit that showed everyone like hey this is real,
the flyer if you know I think a lot of people wait for that cuz their Facebook event you know what I mean might have been made up yeah yeah,
metal group that shows up every time it’s open to anyone who wants to know more about the planning going on with the parade and our next meeting will be on September 22nd at the labor Temple,
I believe at 10 a.m. so.
High school for like homecoming so I know I’ve never even been in a pretty damn thing on the float.

[9:52] It’s going to be at we talked yesterday about making paper mache versions of ourselves.
There are meeting yesterday I really old friend Angie.
And she’s a non-native but she’s just like amazing just really talented and when she heard that I wanted to do float for the podcast she was one of the first ones who reached out.
She’s like I want to help in any way I can you know and I’ll go that’s awesome so her and her friend I kind of told him our ideas and they’re going to think through all through it a little more but.
I just like let us know you by James Brolin so for sure.

[10:38] Petition for their sticks competitions is like most traditional which is like what most people are signing up for of course.

[10:51] So that’s all I really know I don’t think I’m getting awards for sure there’s going to be like plaque giving out and,
do the parade they’ll be people judging and stuff like that and we’re all going to meet back at the labor Temple and then we’ll kind of go through the numbers to,
of course you and then we’ll be going Facebook live to announce the winners of the bloat.
I don’t think so additional most entertainment flash art.

[11:30] School spirit for like the school obviously.

[11:36] ? there’s a couple.

[11:48] They should be most Americans.
Rapid City they did one and.
I think they’re doing another one but there’s is on the 6th have a good way of the Black Hills, but,
red car the best red car
fight scene around about on there.

[12:26] Yes I will nervous you know and this is Sioux Falls this is very different for this area I think you know.
Can a lot of people are out I feel like the most partner supportive.

[12:45] Make a post for it tomorrow I keep meaning to but then I get things it I have to post about that I have to.
Interrupt my,
traditional on prayer and blessing at Lion’s Park right on 14th and Phillips,
everyone is welcome to join us at that time and then 9 9 is the float lineup,
so that’s on the bus will get ready to.
5mm half white,
ugly for my own wedding,
kind of that and then it will start on 14th and Phillips and Northbound on Phillips so going towards 5th Street it ends on 5th Street starts on 48th Street.
It’s going to be police will be present of course but then expect of it to that we’re going to have our own volunteered at each like half block block.

[14:06] Is there more than just volunteered because what we want them to do is that like if they over here at some of the same like always what does that mean like hopefully the volunteer can like interact with a crown and be like hey that’s a that’s a grass dance outfit or that’s dumb.
Meaning behind like.

[14:28] The floating Japan,
so one of my co-workers she’s signed up for a float Too part of Lead South Dakota and,
she’s like when she’s going to walk and pass out candy,
fucking people pop can somebody,
