Lakota Language, Native American Studies students travel to SDSU

Participants visit Wounded Knee exhibit at State Art Museum By Hannah Wentzel etermined to learn more about their heritage, students in Lakota Language and Native American Studies classes at WHS traveled to South Dakota State University (SDSU) in Brookings Wednesday to view a Wounded Knee exhibit at the South Dakota Art Museum and participate in designing and painting colored tiles for the exhibit. The exhibit, entitled “Takuwe,” commemorates the 128th Anniversary of the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre in which an estimated 300 Lakota men, women and children were killed. Teacher Bruce Rekstad said it was a worthwhile trip for the students. “The first phase of our SDSU visit was to view the Wounded Knee Exhibit at the South Dakota Art Museum, where the students toured the exhibit and then went into an art room where all 48 students painted/drew their depiction of the exhibits on 5 x 5 mosaic tiles which, if chosen, will be on display as the exhibit moves on to other locations,” Rekstad said. The students then got a feel for what life as a college student would be like as they toured the SDSU campus, including a residence hall, classrooms and the student union where they met as a group for a short welcome and information session. Rekstad said the students learned a lot and were made to feel welcome.

Senior Jovan RunningEnemy, one of the students who attended the field trip, said she had a good time. “I was amazed at the Wounded Knee Exhibit and was very appreciative of the campus tour,” RunningEnemy said. “It gave me a glimpse of real campus life.” “Takuwe” opened at the South Dakota Art Museum on Nov. 2, 2018, and closed Wednesday.

Senior football players participate in signing-day event Wednesday Seven take part in ceremony at Avera Sports Institute

By Ganin Thompson, Rachel Wilson and Hannah Wentzel Seven Warriors took the next step in their football careers on Wednesday as they participated in a signing day ceremony at the Avera Sports Institute. The seven members from the 2019 WHS senior class signed to play football at various colleges and universities in the region. Team members who participated in the ceremony include seniors Jayden Johannsen who signed with North Dakota State University; Carson Wilson, Augustana University; Adam Durland, Northern State University; Dillion Gaard, Dakota Wesleyan University; Peyton Nieuwsma, Northwestern College and Tupak Kpeayeh and Zaki Ladu, Morningside College. Durland said he was pleased with Feature the event and is happy to be attending Northern State University in Aberdeen next year and playing for the Wolves. “Signing was a great experience for me,” Durland said. “It felt good knowing where the next chapter of my life was going. I signed to Northern State University because I felt like it was the best fit for me and my future.” Ladu said his choice of Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, was an easy one for him to make after visiting the school. “The coaches were very friendly and welcoming at Morningside, and throughout the recruiting process,” Ladu said. “They win a lot, so I thought it was the right place for me to go.”

Congress enacts fugitive slave law (MCT) On Feb. 12, 1793, Congress passed the first fugitive slave law, requiring all states, including those that forbid slavery, to forcibly return slaves who had escaped from other states to their original owners.

Coach Chad Stadem said this senior class is one of the most successful in WHS history. “They were part of four State Championship games, winning three in a row—the first time in 11AAA history and the first three-peat for Washington since the 1952-64 State Championship run—a 35 game winning streak—the second best in Washington history—and a combined record of 44-4 over their four years.” Other varsity athletes in various sports have signed to play next year at colleges and universities at similar events recently.

The laws stated that “no person held to service of labor in one state, under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such labor or service or labor, but shall be delivered up on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due.” As Northern states abolished slavery, most relaxed enforcement of the 1793 law, and many passed laws ensuring fugitive slaves a jury trial. Several Northern states even enacted measures prohibiting state officials from aiding in the capture of runaway slaves or from jailing the fugitives. This disregard of the first fugitive slave law enraged Southern states and led to the passage of a second fugitive slave law as part of the Compromise of 1850 between the North and South. The second fugitive slave law called for the return of slaves “on pain of heavy penalty” but permitted a jury trial under the condition that fugitives be prohibited from testifying in their own defense. Notable fugitive slave trials, such as the Dred Scott case of 1857, stirred up public opinion on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Line. Meanwhile, fugitive slaves circumvented the law through the “Underground Railroad,” which was a network of persons, primarily free African Americans, who helped fugitives escape to freedom in the Northern states or Canada.
