People listen to Harold Frazier (not pictured), chairman of the Cheyenne River Reservation, speak at the Honoring the Spirit event at Fort Laramie National Historic Site in Wyoming, U.S., April 28, 2018. The event commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Fort Laramie treaty. "We are human beings like they are. We need to be treated with respect. We have every right to live to be free in our lands. We face that coming down... can't go through there have to have a permit. That's not our laws, this is our land and we should be able to ride anywhere we want," said Frazier during his speech.
