Good Meat

Monday, August 10, 2015

Good Meat follows an Oglala Lakota man's struggles and triumphs as he attempts to reclaim his health. On the Pine Ridge Reservation, 35-year-old Beau LeBeau is remembered as one of the greatest high school star athletes in South Dakota. He could often be found running through the Badlands at Thunder Valley, but now he is having trouble even walking these same hills. Beau's many years of poor diet and lack of exercise have caused obesity, weighing in at 333 pounds. Beau is not alone, as poor diet and lifestyle habits have led to an explosion of obesity and related illness in American culture. On Indian Reservations, poverty and general trauma have compounded these issues.
