Pictured to the left is a Lakota confirmation cross. When Barbara Stroud-Borth did her internship for the pastorate with the Lakota, there was still a language barrier between the tribes and the whites.

The head pastor came up with the idea of the cross to give to the Indians to show they were Christians so they could take communion.

Lincoln reads the Gettysburg Address.

Stu Churchill introduces Sarah Wakefield.


Wakefield tells her story to the audience at Postville Courthouse.

Guests enjoyed the presentation. Then it was time for cake and ice cream.

She shows the copy of the book she wrote, "Six Weeks in the Sioux Tepees."
