Editors Note, this column is part two of ongoing series. Click here for part one. This week marks 50 years since the 1967 Riots in Detroit. With the upcoming film “Detroit,” I wanted to visit the Riots as an important historical event, specifically through the prism of my family. I was born in Detroit five […]
We have just celebrated the 241st birthday of the United States of America. Over beer and brats, sparklers and skyrockets, we gathered in our neighborhoods and loudly cheered our nation’s Independence Day. (I was actually at home on the Fourth, trying to soothe two little dogs who were deeply disturbed by the pops and whistles […]
Fifty years ago this month, I was in Detroit, Michigan. Well, my parents were in Detroit – I was actually in utero. I was born in December of 1967 and conceived likely sometime in March of that year. As a Gen-Xer born during those turbulent days of the late Sixties, I’ve often thought of myself […]
Earlier this week I posted a blog here at The Sioux Empire about TEDxRapidCity 2017. I served on the member committee during the first year (2015) and was a featured speaker at TEDx 2016 (“The Moral Imperative to Know, Live and Share Your Story”) and this year would be serving as a volunteer. I promised […]
TEDx Rapid City is back for its third year on Wednesday, June 28th. The theme for this year’s offering is ‘Connected, ’ and the all-day event will be held at the Performing Arts Center in downtown Rapid. ‘TED’ stands for Technology Entertainment and Design and the annual TED conferences began in 1984 as a nonprofit […]
I have long been curious about a fellow Rapid City woman that I see making a real difference in our community. I first met Naomi Even-Aberle in 2015, through the Arts Legacy Project (she was an artist, and I was a featured storyteller, and then the following year she was a featured storyteller). Naomi is […]
Sometimes the universe is magic. Sometimes, let’s say on a Tuesday night, you might be sitting in bed and checking your social feeds. It’s the end of a long business day. You had several meetings. You went to yoga. You walked the dogs. You ran errands. You came home, watched an hour of television and […]
I was drawn to many aspects of the Black Hills, during the years that I vacationed here (1999-2005). The spectacular geography, the historical significance, the laidback attitudes of this region. But I chose to move here for one specific reason: I knew this was where I was going to find my tribe. I knew, without […]
I’m going to confess that I’ve never seen Emma Watson in a movie before. I haven’t seen the new live-action “Beauty and The Beast.” Hadn’t seen Aronofsky’s “Noah” or the indie films “The Bling Ring” or “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” I have also never seen any of the “Harry Potter” films. I was […]
So, I promised myself for several years that I would attend the Black Hills Film Festival. Hey – I’m a storyteller. What better environment to be in to watch and hear the stories of creatives coming into our region? I also promised you, the readers of The Sioux Empire Podcast, that I would write about […]
