Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota-10.5.10

I am back on the reservation working on several projects in different formats. Driving into Pine Ridge the other day, I was struck by the starkness of the place, but instantly welcomed by the people I have come to call my friends. We are camping out at the Wilson Ranch with "Junior" and "Lil' Rich". Last night we sat around, shared some tacos and watched the football game talking about life on the reservation and some of the struggles that young people are faced with growing up here. Being in this place is always humbling, difficult, yet beautiful in it's own way.

very neat photos Matthew. Jacob has taken a few trips there to do ropes courses with their school with a friend of his who grew up there. He always comes back with new perspectives.
