Administrators, educators, parents, and students gathered Wednesday for the first day of a four-day education conference.
The Lakota Nation Education Conference introduces the newest information and best practices for schools, including bullying deterrence, school board management, and cultural education. It is all in an effort to provide the best possible education for Native American students.

The conference, which coincides with the Lakota Nation Invitational will conclude this weekend.
