Lakota Women's Stories - The Rosebud Reservation

This past weekend at the Rosebud Reservation was beyond what I could have ever imagined. I can’t tell you how honored I was to not only get to hear the Lakota Women’s stories, but to document them as well.

Saturday night we sat there listening to one of the women’s stories and tears started gathering in my eyes. She was one of the most amazing women I have ever met. She poured out her heart as she spoke of hurt, hope and healing for her people.

It was a surreal moment as I listened to her words and I could feel my world getting smaller in that very moment. Thank you to my dear friends at The By Grace Foundation and The White Buffalo Women's Society - you have opened my heart in a special way. 

Full story coming soon!
