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.
Dave Swallow (C), an elder and headsman of the Oglala Lakota Nation stands with Ivan Lookinghorse (R) and others on the Pine Ridge Reservation to discuss treaties and the treaty ride in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, U.S., April 22, 2018. "We may be poor in the white man's way but we are not poor in the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota ways because we are connected to this earth and connected to above and everywhere," Swallow explained.
