Democrats, Republicans make showing at pow-wow

The 19th annual Oglala Lakota Nation Powwow and Rodeo is attracting the Democrat and Republican parties.

Democrats are helping to pay for the seven meals that will be served throughout the pow-wow. Ramon Bear Runner, meal coordinator, said the Fall River County and South Dakota Democratic parties footed most of the $18,000 bill.

South Dakota Republicans don't want to be left out either. They will serve free ice cream cones on Saturday.

The pow-wow began yesterday and runs through Sunday. Besides meals and ice cream, the event features a carnival, parade and sport tournaments. This year's theme is "Dancing to the Heartbeat of all Nations."
