The push to get out the Indian vote continues:
Rock the Lakota Vote comes to Sinte Gleska University in Mission next Saturday afternoon, November 1, Little Wound School in Kyle next Saturday evening, and United Tribes Technical College in Rapid City next Sunday afternoon, November 2.
The program features the 1491s, the comedy troupe who appeared in the famous September Daily Show segment on the racially offensive football team from our nation's capital. Also appearing is Frank Waln, Sicangu Lakota hip-hop artist from Rosebud.
No word yet on whether Shannon County Sheriff Jim Daggett will be joining his constituents for the Kyle performance. Sheriff Daggett was called twice to the Shannon County early voting station in Pine Ridge this month when supervising auditor Sue Ganje got antsy about how many politically active Indians were showing up at the tiny office to exercise their Constitutional rights. Perhaps the sheriff should come to Kyle for some good music and a good laugh... not to mention his constituents' healthy and legal exercise of their First Amendment rights.
