These are photos of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation: An Oglala Sioux Native American reservation located in the U.S. state of South Dakota. Here men, women and children are forced to live in appalling poverty stricken conditions because of the neglect and ignorance of the Government whose members live in luxury while these people struggle in cramped conditions with little food and no running water. Many are unaware of this and others just choose to turn a blind eye but we need to get the truth out there and encourage more and more people worldwide to speak out against this as it’s completely disgusting and unacceptable for the U.S in today’s modern society. Reblog and help increase awareness and if you would like to help further you can find out more or make a donation here, every little bit counts. http://friendsofpineridgereservation.org/
INTERESTING, 15 NOTES.
AND YET, A PHOTO THAT I POSTED YESTERDAY OF A TACKY/RACIST BELLY RING HAS 3000.
Oh weetz, darling. Don’t you know that no one cares what out life is actually like? They just want to play pretend Indian.
My sister spent a week up that this exact reservation and what she told me and the pictures she showed me matches up with this. The ones I’ve seen in Arizona and Utah look like and sound like this too. It’s no exaggeration.
Native American reservations are by far the most poverty stricken communities in the entire country and represent a massive scar in American history. Yes, most American citizen have no clue about how bad these living conditions are unless they live near a reservation.
I believe I reblogged this before, but will always reblog this, cause people need to be more aware
I’m not Native American, but this is extremely shameful and appalling. This needs to be spread.
