Sioux Indian Nation

Today we travel into the rich farmlands of South Dakota, homeland of the Sioux Indian nation. We'll stop in Mitchell to see the Corn Palace, a remarkable moorish-style building where the interior and exterior are covered with designs of corn outlined with grasses and grain. Then we take a scenic drive through the Crow Creek Indian Reservation and along the mighty Missouri River to Pierre, the state capital for our overnight stay.
