From August 4 th ~ 8 th, 2008 Sinte Gleska University Library was proud host to Dallas Chief Eagle 11, an educator and performing artist whose residency was made possible by the South Dakota State Library & the South Dakota Library Association. Twenty-three area youth attended the daily sessions, including many of our Readers, for whom these lessons were the last Summer Reading event .
