Leo, Day 4 – Fort Yates

In Uncategorized on March 16, 2012 at 11:48 am

Today we went to the Sitting Bull College. The average students are around 32 years old. The college has opened up opportunities to the reservation. We helped elderly people clean their yards and take out their garbage. Afterwards we met the state governor in the capital city in Bismarck. He talked about the cities affected by the oil industry. How they are developing. We met a USDA employee who talked about how his organization helps the rural communities find funding. One of the major issues is that communities are developing too fast and they still want to keep their hometown atmosphere.
