Buffalo Bill performer reburied at SD reservation
By KRISTI EATON
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) -- The remains of a Native American man are being returning to South Dakota more than a century after he died while touring in Connecticut with a western-themed show.
Twenty-year-old Albert Afraid of Hawk died from food poisoning in 1900 while touring with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show. He was buried in an unmarked grave in Danbury, Conn., and family members weren't sure where he was buried until a history buff in Connecticut pieced together the details.
Afraid of Hawk's remains have since been returned to South Dakota, and he will be buried among his family and tribal members on the Pine Ridge reservation on Sunday.
Relative Marlis Afraid of Hawk says she is grateful that his long road home is almost complete.

Oklahoma governor establishes disaster relief fund
May 21, 2013 20:57 GMT
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has established a disaster relief fund to help with the long-term medical, emotional and educational needs of victims of tornados that have ravaged central Oklahoma in recent days.
Fallin said Tuesday she established the OK Disaster Relief Fund in conjunction with the United Way of Central Oklahoma. The fund is designed to help victims of a tornado that struck Moore on Monday, killing at least 24 people, and another that struck Shawnee on Sunday and left two people dead.
Fallin says Oklahomans are grateful for the global outpouring of support following the devastating tornadoes. She says the support will help meet many of the short-term needs of victims. But the governor says victims also face long-term challenges that the new disaster relief fund will help meet.
