Giving Thanks At the Cost of Others


This TED talk is very timely. We celebrated Thanksgiving last week in America. It is a seemingly innocuous and very American holiday. But it always lingers in the back of my mind how our taking this country came to be. We took it. Many people think that’s all forgiven and forgotten now since Native Americans have casinos. However that has not really even begun to make up for what was lost.

The photos in this presentation tell the tale of life today on the Pine Ridge Reservation while Aaron discusses the history.
