Kevin and I spent a week on Pine Ridge Reservation last summer, building beds for the Lakota. It was our first trip for the Burro
too, although we did not camp in it while we were volunteering. We used it to transport donations for the Lakota, filling it with blankets, sheets, and personal items that the Lakota could use. The following week, we went to Yellowstone.
While we were at Pine Ridge, working with a group called Re-Member, a non-profit group, we helped build a tipi. I felt so important; I was assigned to tear up cloth for the flags at the top. That is until the Lakota guide who was helping us, announced to everyone that the flags at the top had not meaning, just decoration.
The first picture is taken while driving through Rosebud Reservation. We stopped to take pictures. It is so beautiful there, not spoiled much. The other pix are building the tipi.
We plan to return in March.
PS: I am afraid I did not volunteer to sleep inside though. I prefer my Burro
