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.

Riding with Native Americans to mark pact anniversary

The Fort Laramie treaty riders come off the trail and ride past a housing cluster on the Pine Ridge Reservation as the sun sets in Oglala, South Dakota, U.S., April 21, 2018. The forward most rider carries a sacred staff. Tradition dictates that all the riders ride behind the person carrying the sacred staff. There may be more than one sacred staff as people might bring a staff to represent their community. STEPHANIE KEITH/REUTERS
