Review for The Tipi Raisers, Oglala, SD, USA
I just returned from my 3rd volunteer trip to the Pine Ridge Reservation with the Tipi Raisers and for the 3rd time in a row, it was a carreer-changing, unforgettable, informative, well-organized, powerful, and beautiful trip. We always had something to do whether it was learning about the Wounded Knee Massacre from elders, participating in an inipi ceremony, dancing to Lakota drums and singing, and helping the people that have been oppressed by the US for centuries. These trips have revived in me a profound compassion for others that I had while growing up in developing countries but started to fade after moving back to the western culture of the US. If it were not for Pine Ridge Reservation, the Lakota, and the Tipi Raisers, I would not be the person I am today.
