Dakota Pathways Resources

Much of the settlement of the state can be examined by looking at how water and dust have played a major role in its human occupation. The many rivers in South Dakota, from the small Keya Paha in the south central part of the state, to the Mighty Missouri running through its heart, have provided life giving waters and life taking floods. Too little water also played havoc on human lives. This episode examines the great floods and dust storms as well as the good times when water led to boom years and good crops.
