October 26, 1949. This picture conveys living conditions and is a typical one in Rapid City, South Dakota. No. 1 is Mrs. Estelle Frazier Rencountre, daughter of the late Rev. Charles Frazier a Congregational Minister of the Santee Tribe of the Sioux Nation. No. 2 is Estelle’s daughter Mrs. Bernice Rencountre Gonzalez. The little tots are their children. Twenty dollars a month is what they pay for rent for these shacks. They are not worth fifty cents a month. Their lawns are saw dust. Their remark: “We live this way and it is hard, but our children will finish schooling some day and we can live differently.” The two in the picture are Episcopalians. Levi M. Rouillard.
