    Olympics of Indian basketball in South Dakota

    Rapid City – It started out in 1977 as a tournament to bring American Indian teams together and prepare them for the long season ahead. It has gone where no one alive today ever thought it would go.
    When the Lakota people hear the acronym “LNI” they know exactly what it means. It means Lakota Nation Invitational, and from that small beginning with eight teams in 1977 on the Pine Ridge Reservation, it has grown to the point that the 2013 LNI – the 37th annual gathering – has 32 teams, 16 boys’ and 16 girls’ teams competing.
