My heart is shining the like sun. I come to my home, to Lakȟóta land, bearing this life flowing through me. I could feel my relatives love both living & passed, a love that human words can’t even say. Little one, I can’t wait to show you these precious moments ♥️ . . . @reclaimyourpower#oglalalakota #lakotasioux #indigenouswomen #24weekspregnant #indigenous #pineridgereservation #badlandsnationalpark
This is where I come from, this will always be home, this is where my brother will rest forever... today was beautiful, filled with love, laughter, food, connection, and family. Proud to be among them, proud to be of them. Blood of my blood, flesh of my flesh. I love my family. #home #family #lakota #pineridgereservation #sacred #place #horses
It’s all fun and games when the van gets stuck (again) 😉
We drove through Pine Ridge Reservation and it was a very eye opening experience to see, first hand, the poverty and sadness of this region of America. #pineridgereservation #nativeamerican #nativepride

Please remember the story of the Lakota people. I can best describe my time on Pine Ridge as a paradox: I will remember both the intense challenges and joy.  If you have questions please feel free to ask, and/or check out the organization that welcomed us during our stay: https://www.re-member.org

Sioux Strong~ Still snowin’ and blowin’ up here with a winter that won’t quit and a nation of kids ready to get outside and do what they do best.  Without Stan Brewer (2nd from right) and his passion for mentoring kids and wanting a better life for them, this movement to provide an outlet from the harsh winters and overcrowded, ramshackle trailers wouldn’t be possible. Together, we’re going turn this epidemic around.  Please donate and spread the word for  @sagetosaddle sagetosaddle.com (link in bio) and many thanks for your support

We'd like to thank the mothers of these two phenomenal humans who were a driving force behind the video in our bio. We had the chance to meet both @scottsoens and Larry T.

🇺🇸 This time 3 years ago @gillebrown84 & I were meeting some lovely folk on Pine Ridge Native Reservation in South Dakota.  Eventually we made a documentary with them which I’m still proud of today.  Thanks @m3blr for sticking me on a plane 🙌🏼 #throwbackthursday

“This photograph is of a beautiful Jingle Dress dancer named Dionna Bull Bear.  She is wearing a medicine dress.  This style of dancing was adopted from the Ojibwe tribe.  Long ago an old man had a very sick daughter.  Many different medicine people were called in to help her.  Still, she continued to fall more ill.  The old man had a dream.  He dreamt of this dress and how it is to be designed and made.  He was to make it this certain way and given to his daughter to wear.  It would bring a healing.  The old man shared this dream with the women of the household and together they made this dress.  Today we use metal snuff lids but back then they used deer hooves.  The dress was put on his daughter and they sang a healing song.  They carried her around with the first push up of the song.  The second push up or verse of the song they helped her along, the third push up she was moving along alone very slowly, but by the fourth and final push up of the song, she was dancing alone.  The power of the healing dress was taking its effect and helping her along.  Today this is still a strong belief across all tribes.  This is a healing dress that is highly respected.  While wearing, one should always carry themselves in a respectful manner with grace and compassion for others.  This is encouraged at all times.” – Alice Phelps, Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota  PRINT SALE **LINK IN PROFILE** Until May 13 I am selling a series of ten signed prints.

“This is Mako Sica, known in English as the Badlands. Millions of years old, they still have many fossils and shells in them.  The badlands are where the Ghost Dance was held.  The Ghost Dance was a vision told by Wovoka to the Lakota People of how this dance would bring back the buffalo and all their dead relatives, but would also kill off the white man.  This was a dance that the US President and cavalry did not want taking place, thus the outcome of Wounded Knee Massacre, and other massacres. Today our people are healing from the negative past events.  Today our youth are getting educated while still learning their beautiful culture.  We are not a religious people, but a spiritual people.  Our learning and healing will continue with the help, love, compassion, and understanding of others.” – Alice Phelps, Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota  PRINT SALE **LINK IN PROFILE** Until May 13 I am selling a series of ten signed prints.

Walking Sam the shadow man convinces teens to commit suicide by whispering to them that they are worthless, not deserving of affection or life. While we don't know much about this spirit, because those in the tribe keep his stories quiet, we do know that his existence supposedly brings on lots of suicide. 🎩 • • • #estoric #wildernessculture #roamtheplanet #theglobewanderer #visualsofearth #simplyadventure #keepitwild #stayandwander #artofvisuals #ourplanetdaily #theoutbound #visualscollective #thegreatoutdoors #neverstopexploring #beautifuldestinations #discoverearth #travelstoke #lifeofadventure  #traveldestinations_ig #livetoexplore #destinationearth #optoutside #collectivelycreate #folklore #interestingthings #historylover #adventure #livebravely
This was me at age 17... I had just organized my first protest with my twin sister and was on the cusp of leaving the reservation for the first time. There are so many things that I would tell myself now like:  MY GIRL YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE PERFECT - your imperfections make you beautiful and unique; MY GIRL DO NOT WORRY SO MUCH - it will be an uphill battle but you have the courage and strength to achieve anything you want; and I would tell myself to MY GIRL DREAM AS HIGH AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN - it doesn’t matter that you don’t know anyone who’s ever done it - you will find new sisters to help you. I would say MY GIRL YOU ARE SO LOVED by your family and people - even if they don’t know how to tell you. I would say MY GIRL FALL EVEN DEEPER INTO YOUR SPIRITUALITY to connect more with your ancestors... they will show you the path. There’s so much I would tell my younger self on how to love myself and so much I would tell young women today... soooooo much I THINK I WILL WRITE A BOOK. #tbt #selflove #advice #realtalk #courage #lakota #indigenouswomenrise #dreamscometrue #joy #sisterhoodissacred
“These are two young male grass dancers, a warrior society dance.  The men would go off to war to fight for their livelihood, protecting their families, horses, land, way of life.  They would come back with scalps of the enemy where they were tied on to their outfit.  Today it is fringe made from yarn or other material.  Because our tribe was a nomadic tribe, these men were called to flatten out the grass and other areas before the tipis were put up and the camp was set up.  This also gave a blessing to Unci Maka (Mother Earth) for allowing to camp there.  The outfit regalia all have significance.  The colors of their beadwork go back into their lineage and tiospaye (family). The red stands for a red day and the blue is a blue day, or night and day where there is a balance.  The Eagle feathers are of high regards and are given to a person if they earned it by their achievements.  The feathers have an energy that is also transmitted to the person wearing them.” – Alice Phelps, Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota *Print Sale Link in Profile* Until May 13 I am selling a series of ten signed prints for $150/piece.

REPOST b/c it’s important🖤@sagetosaddle ・・・ On the wind swept hills, surrounded by the bluffs of the Lakota Badlands, a group of Native American youth brush, bridle and saddle their coveted animals for an afternoon of horsemanship and laughter with close friends. Away from all too common tough home life stands a warm place to ride and finish the days studies, a place safe from the Dakota’s harsh winter months. Believing this is possible, Sage to Saddle with the support of the Pine Ridge community, hopes to provide an indoor horse riding arena for kids from 8-18 years old with an after school program focused on equine relationships and the responsibilities horse care involves. Rotating through arena activities and the required time for completing homework in the attached classroom, students of the program will be given the opportunity to carry on a horse nations tradition with the very animal that made their survival possible.  Our goals are simple due to the factors at hand. On a reservation the size of Rhode Island and Delaware live herds of horses ready to ride and large sections of tribal land. Combined with long, dark winters often averaging frigid temps and a youth population with a hereditary desire to bond with animals 10 times their size.  In the hills just outside the reservations largest community of Pine Ridge, our arena will be open to all youth with shuttle service to and from camp weekdays only starting late October through late-March. With snacks provided and required homework time, our youth will also be provided with the knowledge passed down through generations from paid staff and volunteers well versed in the Lakota Language, traditions of their nation and animal husbandry. Ponies to 15-hand horses will fill the arena with groups of young riders divided by level participating in all disciplines of horsemanship.  With lofty yet obtainable goals, including trail rides throughout the warm months, student trained horse sales to raise
