Yankton Dakota and Pine Ridge Lakota 'Life on the Rez' TV Tuesday

  • Message from Faith Spotted Eagle:
    Please check out the trailer for the broadcast on Tuesday, July 10, at 9 pm CST for interviews on Yankton and Pine Ridge for positive things we are doing. I am praying that it will be culturally relevant. They came to film our Brave Heart work during the First Kill Coming of Age ceremony for our young men. It was conducted by my son Kip Spotted Eagle Collins. You can repost the trailer, it is from the OWN page, Oprah Winfrey.  Thanks.
