Inter-tribal group completes motorcyle ride thru South Dakota
Participants in the first annual Iron Pony Inter-Tribal Honor Run are expected to complete their motorcycle ride through South Dakota today.

The ride began on Saturday at Wounded Knee, on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The group visited the Crazy Horse Memorial on Monday and will finish today at Bear Butte, a sacred site near Sturgis, the site of the annual Sturgis Rally.

“It’s a cultural exchange, and we can talk about each other’s tribes and share stories,” organizer Rex Carolyn told The Rapid City Journal. “When everyone leaves they will go home knowing something about other tribes and tell their tribe about it. That’s how we preserve our culture. That’s how we make people understand.”
