The above video is a moving presentation of photographs of the native Lakota people and the history between the United States government and the Lakota people. It seems so simple to sweep the reality of a dirty history and its affect on an entire population of a proud people. Here is what TED
had to say at press time: Aaron Huey's effort to photograph poverty in America led him to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where the struggle of the native Lakota people -- appalling, and largely ignored -- compelled him to refocus. Five years of work later, his haunting photos intertwine with a shocking history lesson in this bold, courageous talk from TEDxDU.
