American Indian affairs group meets in Rapid City

Rapid City, South Dakota (AP) 10-08

Rapid City is the site for the annual conference of the Governors Interstate Indian Council, made up of state Native American affairs officers and commissioners.

The group planned to take part in events at Crazy Horse Memorial, which is Native American Day in South Dakota. Mount Rushmore National Memorial Superintendent Gerard Baker is on the program.

The council also plans to tour the Pine Ridge Reservation and hold talks on Indian education and health care issues.

The council, established 59 years ago, promotes government-to-government relations between states and Indian tribes.
