Chris Bashinelli (2011)

Host and Global Explorer Chris Bashinelli, travels the world to experience life outside of his hometown- Brooklyn, New York. In this program, he visits the Pine Ridge Reservation to explore the often forgotten culture of the Oglala Lakota Native Americans. While there he embarks on a life-changing buffalo harvest, gets schooled by a women’s basketball team, visits with a 14-year-old suicide prevention activist, and finds himself 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.
