By 1890, the Lakota people, once powerful and free, were entirely dependant on the U.S. government. The U.S. had forcibly removed our people from our homeland, confined them to reservations and cut their rations by half.

That 'ol Indian Fry Bread' made of lard & flour ~
"Do you know where the 'idea' of frybread comes from, young one?", asked the Elder...

Everyone sat back and looked so eager to hear the story this beautiful Elder was about to tell, all smiles...
"Buggy flour and rancid lard", he said softly with his head down... Flour, you know, with bugs in it, and lard that had gone bad... that was all we got from the Indian Agent.
That was all we had to cook with, it was all we had to eat... Buggy flour and rancid lard... And so we 'cooked' with both... That is how this European mystical and wonderful idea of 'frybread' came about... I just thought I would tell you."

The Americans living on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota have had a tough run for generations, and it may be about to get worse.

Picture It I See photography

I was down on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation. Has a photographer I am always looking for people and places to photograph. I am a storyteller with my camera. I saw him from a distance. I asked to take his picture. His eyes told a story and his face did too. I asked him his name and he told me it was not important. Like a curious three year old I asked again why? He said, "because I am not important." Humor me I spoke and once again asked why? Because I drink I am invisible to the world. I looked him straight in the eye and said, "well your not invisible to me." I told him I could take anyone's picture but I choose him. Soon everyone will know who you are and you will no longer be invisible. Your face has a story to tell and so do you. His soft brown eyes suddenly glazed over with tears as he said thank you. He turned his head and wiped them away quickly and said I am ready. When I was done taking his picture I showed it to him. He looked at it, then at me and whispered words I would never forget. Charlie, He spoke, "my name is Charlie" then slowly walked away. I just received word from some who read this he passed away in July. His real name I was told was Cliff Grass Sr. My heart aches for a man I barely knew but changed my life forever. Rest In Peace my friend.
