The first week of interviews in Sioux Falls brought a mixed bag of South Dakotans and plenty of stories about life on the farm.
Philip Sietstra (left) was interviewed by his son, James Sietstra (right), who told many wonderful farm stories, including one about riding a pet hog with his brother as a child and accidentally causing the hog to have a heart attack. Whoa Nellie, slow down hog!
Local artist Carl Grupp (left) came in with his friend Gale Mord (right). Carl says that in life, “we create a myth of who we are and then we try to live up to that myth.” As a result, he has been trying to live up to that myth throughout his life by creating soul-searching, autobiographical art.
