Early 2010, a French couple I’ve known since grad school sent me an email saying they wanted to visit me in Colorado and, if possible, visit the Lakota Nation in Pine Ridge, South Dakota.
Kind of hard to say no that that sort of request. Trees, Water & People, an amazing non-profit based here in Fort Collins, runs a few energy-based programs on the rez, so I offered my photographic services in exchange for them setting up an eco-tour for my friends (Antoine and Cathy). We had a great time sleeping in teepees and riding horses (ouch, by the way).
Solar Today ran with the story, and ran a few of the images.
