Broc Anderson will share a personal and research-based presentation about the newly re-discovered Red Shirt Winter Count in the Sheridan County Historical Society in Rushville, Nebraska. Winter counts are important Lakota community history records of important yearly events. After researching this little ledger book, Broc and the Sheridan County Historical Society worked together on the future of this important piece of Lakota history and heritage and ultimately returned the winter count back to the Delphine Red Shirt family in October 2022.
