The Pine Ridge Community Storytelling Project

In August of 2012, National Geographic featured Aaron Huey’s Pine Ridge Community Storytelling Project, a project that emphasizes the importance of the voices of the people living on the Pine Ridge reservation. This project allows their stories to be told, in the way that they want them to be told. This agency, to tell your own story in your own voice, is extremely important and powerful.

Two of the stories can be found below, but I would highly recommend listening to as many as possible.
