VERMILLION — The Center for Disabilities, located at the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine, has launched a new education, outreach and training effort serving Native Americans with disabilities in South Dakota.

Called the Oyate’ Circle, this effort will be led by Jim E. Warne, an enrolled Oglala Lakota tribal member, and the new community engagement director for the USD Center for Disabilities. In the Lakota language, Oyate’ translates as "the people."
