The past week in Pine Ridge has been an eye opening experience. We got to learn about the Lakota culture and different traditions. I learned many life lessons from listening to many elders in both the Wanblee and Kyle communities. It made me realize that I need to try to live life to the fullest and with a smile on my face. I also learned that I need to be welcoming to everyone. Every where we went, for example the Pow-Wow in Allen, the community members welcomed all of us with open arms. This trip has been a great life experience and we all made great connections with the people there. I definitely would love to go back again and learn even more.
