I am a new member, though not really new to the site. In my relentless but periodic research, I quite often end up here. What I love about this site is the comprehensive information that is produced from so many knowledgeable senior members. I finally decided to join, not because I am just starting my research but rather because I am running into walls...oh so many walls. I plan to travel to my ancestral reservations(Rosebud, Standing Rock, Yankton-Charles Mix, Pineridge) this summer in order to do more in depth research, however I have gained enough knowledge since first ending up on this site, that I now know what questions I should ask this forum.
I want to say in advance, thank you to all of you who keep this site going and growing. You are in many ways, the elders and keepers of a history that many people are trying to reclaim, and I for one am eternally grateful.
