    While on the campus of St. Joseph's Indian School stop by the "Our Lady of the Sioux" chapel. This chapel features Oscar Howe's "Indian Christ" that was replicated into a tapestry for the chapel. It is located behind the alter and is 7' by 10'6". Also featured in the chapel are beautiful stained glass windows with a Native American/Christian theme. This is free to the public.

    This is an incredible museum dedicated to preserving the culture of the Lakota people. ("Akta Lakota" means "to honor the people") The museum is free and located on the campus of the St. Joseph's Indian School in Chamberlain. The museum features local art, historical information and has a nice gift shop filled with books and local beadwork.

    Located in Oacoma (just across the bridge from Chamberlain) this is a nice rest stop while travelling across the state. Strictly mid-western fare, order a sandwich and the salad bar (complete with hot-dish, a SD specialty). Homemade apple pie with cinnamon ice cream is a must and the nickel coffee, while not the best, is still hard to beat price-wise. Excellent service and friendly staff. You will see plenty of hunters, bikers and even the occasional group of Legionnaires.

    Favorite Dish: Homemade pies, made fresh daily, they sell over 50,000 slices a year!

Chamberlain Shopping

  • by jluv41 Written Jul 1, 2006

    Located in Oacoma, SD (just across the bridge from Chamberlain) this gift shop carries the widest variety of South Dakota, Native American and Cowboy historical books that I have seen. This is of big interest for my father and he purchases several every time he visits. The rest of the gift shop contains 'touristy' fare not unlike you would find anywhere else in the state.

    What to buy: Native American history books, Native American newspapers

    What to pay: Fairly priced

    Fondest memory: I remember the sudden but gradual turn of I-90 bending to the right as I drove west. The interstate went down slightly to a bridge over the mighty Missouri River. The interstate takes a sharp left and climbs over a hill on the other side. From the top of that hill, I saw the rolling hills and grassland that I had always imagined I would see on the Great Plains.
