The ASPIRE Native American Committee would like to share information about the state of education and life in general for Native Americans in our region. Over the next few months, we will periodically share short videos and documentaries about Native American life in our various states. Our hopes are that professionals in our region will gain valuable information from these videos that will help us better assist and advocate for our students.

First up, we have “Life Lakota,” a documentary that captures the state of the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota today. Thank you to Marion Blue Arm of the University of South Dakota’s Educational Talent Search program for sharing this documentary with our committee.
