Australian educator, Tony Kempnich from Kyogle, New South Wales, visited Black Hills State University recently on a scholarship from the Australian government to study Lakota people and culture. He will bring this educational information back to his classroom in Australia. Kempnich attended American Indian Studies classes and gave a presentation to the Lakota Omniciye Club, in which he shared a multi-media welcome from his home town where Australian aboriginals shared aboriginal greetings. According to Kempnich, the indigenous people in Australia share many of the same concerns with the Lakota people here. Pictured with Kempnich is Urla Marcus, assistant director of the Center of Indian Studies, Dr. John Glover, director of the Center of Indian Studies, Kempnich, and Jace DeCory, instructor of American Indian Studies.
