Join us in celebrating the legacy of 2018 Inductee Nicholas Black Elk with a series of events in Rapid City, South Dakota on Thursday, August 2, 2018.

Black Elk was born in 1863 on the Little Powder River. As a thirteen-year-old, he witnessed the Battle of Little Bighorn. After the massacre at Wounded Knee Creek, Black Elk settled into his role as a traditional holy man. In 1904, he converted to Catholicism, adopted the name Nicholas, and acted on behalf of Jesuit missionaries among his people.
