Longtime Sioux Indian Museum curator honored

Rapid City, South Dakota (AP) September 2010

A longtime curator of the Sioux Indian Museum in South Dakota has been honored for her years of service in preserving American Indian history.

Sen. Tim Johnson last week presented Paulette Montileaux with a statement he had entered into the Congressional Record praising her service over 42 years with the federal Interior Department, culminating in her duties as curator of the Sioux Indian Museum in Rapid City for a quarter century. She retired last spring.

Montileaux is a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. Johnson, a South Dakota Democrat, says her work has helped preserve the history of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota people.
