The Lakota Nation Invitational, a high school holiday sports classic, celebrated it’s 38th anniversary this past weekend in Rapid City, South Dakota. Brian Brewer originated the event so Oglala Lakota basketball players could find games after the violence of the American Indian Movement in 1976. Brian, the recent, former tribal chairman, from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, is pleased with the growth and reconciliation, the event now represents.
President of the Oglala Lakota, Brian Brewer took the time to sit down and visit about his extraordinary life as a teacher, Lakota Nation Invitational originator and elected leader of his tribe. This is a story that could have many chapters, yet Brian’s heart is obviously big in the few minutes we have with him. Word With A Champ is honored to have a man of this nature to share his mind with us.
