I’ve just come back from my first visit and listening trip to Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota. There’s too much to put in a post - but it was massively affecting and important to me. I was anticipating meeting some amazing people, but I couldn’t have imagined the warmth and generosity of the welcome we received. Especially during such a difficult time. I’m so deeply honoured and grateful to have been hosted by Jesse Short Bull, Kevin Killer, Henry Red Cloud, President Bear Runner and Thunder Valley CDC who are doing some amazing work. It’s been a particularly intense time since the flooding, with more precipitation on the way, and there’s a petition you can sign to try to release federal emergency funding quicker ([ Tinyurl.com Link ] which feels crucial. But I was blown away by typical Oglala Lakota resilience and dignity. Thanks, all love, M. #MarcusMondays
