The online version of National Geographic magazine will publish the unedited stories of any Oglala Lakota living on the Pine Ridge Reservation who is at least 13 years old. The date of publication is July 15.
International photojournalist Aaron Huey has been working for the last seven years to give the Oglala people a voice.
Huey contacted Native Sun News to help spread the word that this is the Oglala people’s chance to tell their stories in mainstream media–and without focusing on poverty, violence and alcoholism as seen in past mainstream media representations.
