The Plight of the Oglala Lakota

Spread the Word!

The story of the Pine Ridge is one that has been echoed across decades and across cultures and continents as “progress” has collided with the indigenous people.  The Pine Ridge Reservation of southern South Dakota is in actuality – a fraction of what it was when originally set up by treaties between the Oglala Sioux nation and the U.S. Government.  We could go into the details here, but National Geographic photographer Aaron Huey does such a splendid job in the Ted talk featured below – we defer to his passion, experience and facts.  Please watch and share this with friends and family – encourage those you know who can be influential to advocate on behalf of our brothers and sisters.
