Noem Seeks Biden Administration Approval For Mt. Rushmore Fireworks

(Rapid City, SD) — Governor Kristi Noem is making overtures to the Biden administration, asking for Independence Day fireworks at Mount Rushmore. Noem’s previous request for permits was declined by the National Park Service. Noem argued in her letter that over 50-percent of South Dakotans are vaccinated, minimizing threats to public health. Critics say Native American tribes and leaders object to the event, citing historical and cultural claims to the land.
