A very Merry Christmas and happy holiday season to you all! One of the best things I’ve enjoyed as a journalist is the opportunity to learn how many folks – including native people – ring in the Yuletide cheer. I remember a Yankton Sioux recollecting his childhood in South Dakota, where an Indian Santa brought toys, food, and clothes, to the tribal community center in the 1950s. Kris Kringle told all the kids that he’d just arrived via flying saucer (sci-fi was big back then).
