In conjunction with the main exhibit at the Dahl Arts Center, high school students from the Rapid City Area School district will be creating their own artistic responses to the different vignettes in their art classes. Their artworks will be on display at the Rapid City Performing Arts Center during and after the Lakota Emergence exhibit.

“I am using the Lakota emergence narrative as a lesson text with my 4S students in my Native American Arts course. Each student has chosen a vignette and is creating a piece of artwork that expresses their thinking about the vignette. I encourage students to use any medium with which they feel confident: charcoal, beadwork, paint, fiber arts, or any other materials they like.”
