The Lakota (Sioux) people mark the 150th anniversary of the Fort Laramie peace treaty between the Sioux Nation and United States government with a 400-mile horse ride from Green Grass, South Dakota, to Fort Laramie, Wyoming, where the treaty was signed.
Fort Laramie treaty riders and support crew roll out some hay for the horses to eat at the end of the day in Scenic, South Dakota, U.S., April 19, 2018. Horses in Lakota culture are considered sacred. The Lakota people say that the horses eat before they do because the horses carry them. STEPHANIE KEITH/REUTERS
