Money awarded to the Prehistoric Indian Village will be used to purchase computers, touchscreens and cameras to be used on the ramps of the Archeodome to illustrate the archaeological process to visitors when there is no active dig taking place; and money given to the S.D. Parks and Wildlife Foundation will be used to organize, catalogue, scan and preserve documents associated with Peter Norbeck and the creation of Custer State Park.

The foundation was created by the Mary Chilton Chapter, Sioux Falls, of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, to support historic preservation, education and patriotism in the Sioux Falls community and the state of South Dakota. Grants are awarded three times each year. Inquiries concerning grant applications should be sent to: Mary Chilton DAR Foundation, P.O. box, 90716, Sioux Falls, S.D. 57109-0716.
