Native Americans are still very much here, struggling for dignity

A short, powerful film that captures the journey of photographer Aaron Huey as he reveals the sufferings and struggles of the Native Lakota people of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. At first, Huey sees Pine Ridge as just another bleak place to take pretty pictures, but after getting to know its people and history, he comes to see the reservation a POW camp, ‘where one day, the guards walked away.’ Eric Becker’s film reminds us that art can make us care about the lives of those we might rather forget. All photographs used in the film are ©Aaron Huey.
