Mankato, Minn. – Guest speaker Duane Hollow Horn Bear will discuss “The Life Experiences and Stories of a Traditional Lakota Teacher” Thursday, Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. in Minnesota State University, Mankato’s Centennial Student Union Ballroom.

The event is free and open to the public.

Duane Hollow Horn Bear, a Sicangu Lakota, was born and raised on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

Duane was a faculty member of Sinte Gleska University, a four-year private American Indian tribal college in Mission, S.D., where he taught for 25 years in the field of history and culture and language, and he is a community and spiritual leader.
