Ghost Dance Short Film
Ghost Dance is a film written and directed by Dave Swallow, a Lakota Medicine Man on Pine Ridge Reservation. The goal of the film is to educate the world about Pine Ridge Reservation and the precious Lakota teachings before they are lost. We shot the first half of the film in 2022 and plan to finish the film in 2023!
Pine Ridge Housing Crisis
Pine Ridge Reservation is the poorest nation int the US and was built on broken promises. It is a third world country right in the middle of North America. The Lakota people live in dire poverty and the unemployment rate is a staggering 95%. There are very few jobs on the Reservation and the majority of families are bound to the welfare system that gives them just enough to stay alive. The housing crisis on Pine Ridge is real, about 90% of families live in substandard dwellings, most of which would be considered "condemned" outside the reservation. Many families live without heat and rely on a single wood-burning stove inside dilapidated trailer homes without running water and proper plumbing.
