This month, Dakota Life showcases just a taste of the art blossoming out of southeast South Dakota. Connected by the southern-most leg of I-29 and boundless creativity, artists in Sioux Falls and Vermillion are demonstrating canvases are to be found not just in bronze and brick, but in coffee cups and community.

Learn. Dream. Grow.

Near the banks of the Vermillion and Missouri rivers, Vermillion’s quaint, vibrant downtown bespeaks a community blessed by the creative milieu of a university town. Home to a sculpture walk and prodigious murals by artists Dick Termes and Rick Johns, two new public paintings have recently emerged on the walls of the Coyote Twin Theater. Eúŋkičhetupi, meaning “Come Back to Life” in Lakota, was born of community meetings held by lead artists Reyna Hernandez, Inkpa Mani, and Liz Skye and assisted by Jenae Porter and University of South Dakota professor Amber Hansen. The issues and ideas that emerged in public conversations inspired lead artists to incorporate images and themes that address identity, motherhood, landscape, and water,


among others. A tribute to women worldwide, the striking work tells the Sioux creation story while also addressing the contemporary tensions of living in modern and traditional culture. April Matson, who is Lakota and Alaska Native, and her two young daughters participated in the design and painting process. “The colors that we’re painting are very Indigenous colors,” says Matson. “The brown skin… it’s really overwhelming and emotional and beautiful.” Work for the second part of the mural, titled Wanáhca, (Lakota: “flower that blooms”) intensifies this spring. See the mural and meet the artistic crew who stewarded the project, sometimes painting in 100+ degree heat, to bring the vision to life.

Art in the lobbies of buildings is not uncommon. Artists actively making art in the lobbies of buildings is less so. But sculptor Darwin Wolf likes to be mobile. One place he set up shop is the lobby of the Sioux Falls VA Medical Center to create a sizeable monument to the first female fighter pilots. “He’s located right outside our primary care waiting area,” says Erin Bultje, SFVAHCS Public Affairs Officer. “And so for the veterans to sit in the waiting area and have him to watch has been a really calming effect, is what some veterans have said. You know, they’re here for treatment and it can be a scary process. So for them to watch something and take their mind off of what could be happening, it’s been really nice for them.” Working amidst the bustle of the VA, Wolf receives all kinds of input from the veterans. “The feedback here has been really, really good,” says Wolf. “Both on the critical side and the appreciation side. People who have really enjoyed it tell me their stories over and over again because

I’m kind of telling them a story here. I’ve had three different pilots come and tell me, ‘Oh, my gosh that’s spot on.’ Or, ‘try this differently, that’s a bit off.’ They’ve been really helpful in helping me compose this and get everything really right and that’s what I want. So, their critique has been fantastic.”

As one might expect, latte art contests, where the coffee is the canvas, are stimulating events. Baristas arrive to their coffeehouse coliseums armed with select weapons of the trade: favored stainless steel frothing pitchers and well-honed foaming techniques. SDPB captures the high spirits of camaraderie and competition at the Latte Art Throwdown, hosted at The Bean coffeehouse in Vermillion, where champion coffee artists and rising stars work deftly to turn espresso foam floating on the tops of coffee drinks into delicate but drinkable (continued on p. 25)

Florida is famous for its beaches, blue water and year-round sun, but it also has a surprising wild side. It is home to pine forests, coral reefs and the famous Everglades wetland, the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. Here, manatees swim in crystal-clear rivers, baby alligators practice their hunting skills and miniature deer roam free. But every year, this state faces the full forces of nature: from wildfires to flooding to powerful hurricanes. Now, a growing human population, climate change, and abandoned exotic pets, like the Burmese pythons that can eat alligators, also are threatening this wild paradise. With the help of pioneering scientists, can Florida’s ecosystems continue to weather the storm? Find out on Nature Wild Florida. Photos: Jeff Stamer

Nash Hutmacher

The Polar Bear Becomes a Cornhusker by Katy Beem

Blonde and burly at 6-foot-5 and 305 pounds, Chamberlain High School senior Nash Hutmacher has made a name for himself and then some. Dubbed “The Polar Bear” by wrestling parents as a sizeable freshman grappler, Hutmacher has embraced the term of endearment, hashtagging #ThePolarBear on his social media pages, including Tweets that officially announced he’s signed to play defensive tackle with the University of Nebraska this fall. In the meantime, Hutmacher will finish out an impressive high school career wrestling for the Chamberlain Cubs. The Polar Bear hasn’t lost a match since eighth grade and has won four state heavyweight championships. This year he goes for his fifth individual state wrestling title. The son of powerlifter Joe Hutmacher, Nash first hit the mat as a first grader. “I love competition, that’s kind of what drives me, honestly,” says Hutmacher. “Competition creates greatness. If you’re beating everybody by 50

points each time you played football or something, you wouldn’t get any better. Tight matches against good kids makes you better. I want to leave no doubt that I’m the best whether it’s wrestling, football, or any other place.” To ensure he’s always testing his limits, Hutmacher literally goes looking to get beat, driving an hour to Winner or Mitchell to wrestle against different athletes and mix up his regular training. But he’s quick to credit the friends he’s met and the fun he’s had along the way. “Anyone on my team or anyone else, I’m no better than they are,” says Hutmacher. “I may be able to beat them in a wrestling match, but to me being a good athlete is also about being a good person. I don’t need to go out and brag or show off too much – you can let your talking be done on the mat or in the football game.” When he’s not on the mat or gridiron, Hutmacher is also a shotputter who likes to hunt and fish the Missouri. In fact, Nebraska coaches

Scott Frost, Ryan Held and Tony Tuioti took Hutmacher and his family fishing 20 minutes south of Lincoln during his spring official visit. Wooing aside, Hutmacher weighed his choices, which included Wisconsin and Oregon, carefully. “It was honestly a really, really tough decision,” says Hutmacher. “I’m really going to miss wrestling. With football, you’re on the field with your helmet and shoulder pads, you don’t really get to talk with the guys. At wrestling tournaments, you meet a lot of great people. I’m going to miss the camaraderie. But football is where I feel I have the most potential to succeed.” SDPB livestreams and broadcasts all matches at the South Dakota State Wrestling Championships, February 27-29.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS Following the Civil War, all-Black towns emerged in what is now modern-day Oklahoma. By 1905, Black families seeking to make a new start enjoyed fellowship and got a reprieve from widespread racism. They acquired one and a half million acres of land in the state. Initially founded in an effort to convince the United States to create an all-Black state, most of these towns have since been swallowed up by nearby counties and cities, but a few cling heroically to life. Residents now fight to ensure that their towns retain independence and character. Local community members and historians give contemporary commentary as the story unfolds on America ReFramed Struggle & Hope.

At the intersection of racial identity, historical narrative and international commerce, Independent Lens Black Memorabilia follows the propagation of demeaning representations of African Americans. From industrial China to the rural South to Brooklyn, meet the people who reproduce, consume and reclaim these racially charged objects. SDPB2: Tuesday, Feb. 4, 6pm (5 MT)

Prince Among Slaves tells the story of Abdul Rahman, a trilingual military general and heir to a West African nation the size of Great Britain, who did not return to Africa for 40 years. In that time, he toiled on Foster’s plantation. He married a fellow slave, Isabella, and they had nine children. Gradually, he also became the most famous African in America, attracting the support of President John Quincy Adams and Secretary of State Henry Clay. Abdul Rahman returned to Africa at the age 67, only to fall ill and die just as word of his return reached his former kingdom. Throughout a life of Shakespearean dimensions, Abdul Rahman maintained his dignity and hope for the freedom of his people. SDPB2: Monday, Feb. 10, 6pm (5 MT)

On the morning of July 16, 1949, a young Lake County farm wife accused four young black men of rape. The case of The Groveland Four played out over several years, and led to a race riot, torture, multiple murders, two trials, a Supreme Court reversal and the assassination of a Florida civil rights leader. Remember the case that helped lay a foundation for the end of Jim Crow segregation and the start of the Civil Rights Movement.

few of the luminaries weighing in on the life and career of the cultural icon.

Mattke is “The Sioux Falls Batman” and Hendrix is “Captain America.” Parent Laura Burkhard says, “For my son to just have a moment of pure happiness and smile because he sees Batman while he is in the hospital is a lot more than I could ever hope for as the parent of a child that has spent so much time in the hospital.” To watch this digital video short and more, find SDPB on Facebook at facebook.com/sodakpb Dakota Life: Recipes of Our Grandmothers South Dakotans responded on Facebook as traditional dishes evoked memories of days gone by. Transportable and easy to eat on the go, pasties were a mainstay of miners in the early days of the Black Hills. Today, pasties are a “church basement” food tradition that brings the community together. Read the article at SDPB.org/blogs/dakota-life/the-pasty.

Also celebrate the Danish treat, Aebleskiver. Roberta Rasmussen and Kayla Nielsen share their family traditions and the history around the apple pancakes.

Kevin Cole & Joe Obermueller Monday, February 17

Loving Arms, a new play by University of Sioux Falls (USF) English professor Kevin Cole premieres at USF February 19. USF theatre professor Joe Obermueller directs the work, which explores art, relationships and the threat of violence as three strangers – an unemployed linguist, a city traffic manager, and a docent—forge an unlikely friendship in conversation about two paintings: one by Artemisia Gentileschi and one by Michelangelo Caravaggio while at a world famous art museum. As the three celebrate their newfound friendship, an American shooter enters. Can what happens next be considered parable, allegory, or just another day in America? Cole and Obermueller discuss staging the work.

Steves on SDPB Radio: A Virtual Café for Travelers A lively mix of guest interviews and listener calls, Travel with Rick Steves goes beyond the Europe that Mr. Steves is famous for, with shows covering travel and cultures across every continent. The author of 30 travel guidebooks and longtime host of the Rick Steves’ Europe TV series, Steves was attracted to radio because of its ability to interact with listeners in ways that TV cannot. “Radio provides a virtual café for travelers to meet up, sharing tips, insights and discoveries,” says Steves. “On my radio show, rather than being the tour guide, as I am on TV, I get to host the coming together of experts on various cultures and travel themes with our callers and listeners. Serving as the conduit for all this exciting travel information comes with a downside: now I want to travel everywhere our radio show does.” Travel with Rick Steves airs Sundays at 10am (9 MT) on SDPB Radio and SDPB.org.

(Shameless placement of SDPB Station Relations Manager Katy Beem’s dog, Fernando.)

Dogs have long been dependable companions by our sides. But it wasn’t always that way — and a look at their closest living relative, the wolf, makes it clear why. Researchers reveal how humans tamed fearsome canines over tens of thousands of years, and how modern dog intelligence and behaviors have made them indispensable companions. SDPB1: Wednesday, Feb. 12, 8pm (7 MT) SDPB2: Thursday, Feb. 13, 6pm (5 MT)

(Shameless placement of SDPB Marketing Manager Matti Smith’s cat, Sky.)

They may have stolen many hearts — and the internet — but cats can be perplexing pets. As much cuddly and playful as they are aloof and uncaring, they’ve often raised the question: Did humans ever really domesticate felines? And what more can science tell us about a relationship that predates history? SDPB1: Wednesday, Feb. 19, 8pm (7 MT) SDPB2: Thursday, Feb. 20, 6pm (5 MT)

NATURE premieres The Mighty Weasel. Members of the weasel family are often portrayed as villains and associated with unsavory behavior. But do they deserve this bad reputation? To find out, this film follows the adventures of first-time stoat mom Bandita raising her kits in a unique garden set up; shows tiny orphan weasel Twiz on her journey back to the wild; discovers that a weasel’s bite is even stronger than a tiger’s; and how the fearless honey badger has brains and not just brawn. It’s time to reveal the truth about the weasel family. SDPB1: Wednesday, Feb. 19, 7pm (6 MT)

Join renowned paleontologist Kirk Johnson on an epic adventure. Follow a trail of fossils found in all the wrong places, from beech trees in Antarctica to hippo-like mammals in the Arctic. What caused such dramatic changes at the ends of the Earth? And what controls the dial on Earth’s thermostat? Today, the Arctic is warming faster than anywhere else in the world, and Antarctica has locked in its ice enough water to raise sea level by a terrifying 200 feet. Johnson uses Earth’s history as a cipher to decode what is going on today, and what the future may hold. SDPB1: Wednesday, Feb. 5, 7pm (6 MT) SDPB2: Thursday, Feb. 6, 6pm (5 MT) Photo: WGBH/NOVA

Every summer since 2011, “the play is the thing” at Prentis Park in Vermillion. The South Dakota Shakespeare Festival stages a work by the bard in the park’s stone amphitheater, an outdoor performance space constructed in 1937 by the WPA. Actors and technical hands from throughout South Dakota and the U.S. converge in this town of 10,000 for several weeks of rehearsals, set-building, and costume creation. While in Vermillion, the cast and crew gather with South Dakotans for

performances and workshops that transcend Shakespeare. Meet West Coast-based actor Kenny Ramos (Diegueño Iipay/Kumeyaay) who led students like Kendra Elk Looks Back of He Dog and Kevin Hare (Ihanktonwan) of Wagner through theatre workshops, including a reading of Mary Kathryn Nagle’s play Return to Niobrara, about Chief Standing Bear’s case against the U.S. “It directly deals with Ponca and Omaha histories and stories,” says Ramos. “Bright Eyes, who is the daughter of Chief Iron Eye of the Omaha people, and here we are, in what is Omaha territory.” Elk Looks Back and Hare share their experiences with fine arts and representation. “I played the dad in one of the plays,” says Hare. “I got to experience what it’s like for parenthood figures of Native American children to experience what it’s like for their children to be discriminated against for who they are. It puts you in a place where you
