Red Cloud Indian School: Engaging in Audacious Hope

on Friday, 22 November 2019.

"The way in which our story is told is often framed in this very negative way. That it’s poor, that it’s crippled by alcoholism and poverty and drugs...

That this place has no future.

The story that should be paid attention to is not that people are living here in destitution, and it’s not that people who are still living here have given up.

There’s an element that is impossible to ignore which is the powerful spirit of this place."

- Maka Akan Najin Black Elk
Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Red Cloud Indian School
