Trail Ride

"I have been in South Dakota this summer, mostly working on the Crow Creek Reservation, but also traveling to Rosebud, Yankton, and Lower Brule Reservations for brief visits. I participated in the Sacred Horse Society Ride to Honor the Women and Children (Wayne as well) and I rode nearly five miles. I am beginning the ethnographic portion of my dissertation research, which involves an exploration of the positive intergroup relationships formed between the Native and non-Native communities in central South Dakota, as a result of the annual 176 mile ride."
