"America's Native Prisoners of War" by Aaron Huey


Aaron Huey’s effort to photograph poverty in America led him to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where the struggle of the native Lakota people — appalling, and largely ignored — compelled him to refocus. Five years of work later, his haunting photos intertwine with a shocking history lesson in this bold, courageous talk. (Filmed at TEDxDU.)

    I am interested in how much it costs to go to the lakota retreat, we have witnessed enough and it is time to change life for the Lakota as a part of America. I would like to be a part of the retreat to make a difference for them and change popular indifference.

  2. Thank you. I worked as a public health nurse for 10 years on a Montana reservation…my heart understands…I will be forever ashamed at what my relations did. Thank you again
