Bridge the Gap to Pine Ridge

Education

Bridge the Gap to Pine Ridge

Join Global Explorer, Chris Bashinelli, on an introspective adventure through the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Embark on a life-changing buffalo harvest, get schooled by a women’s basketball team, be inspired by a 14-year-old suicide prevention activist, and watch Chris shove his arm shoulder-deep up a cow’s backside while trying to better understand employment on the Reservation. With humor and pathos, he uncovers stories of hope and learns how Lakota culture has prevailed in the face of adversity.
