Hear a fascinating story of 120 years of friendship between 3 Pittsburghers and The Lakota Nation (Sioux) in the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. It all began with a visit to Western Pennsylvania by Buffalo Bill in 1896. And out of those friendships arose a lifelong cross-cultural learning journey that has expanded the lives and hearts of all involved. Learn about the various ongoing projects that have unfolded over the years and have continued to this day and the full-circle healing of the sacred hoop that was broken after Wounded Knee; something that Lakota visionary, Black Elk, predicted would happen one day. Discover gripping facts that your history class left out and how these events and are still playing out today. Local historian and educator, Peter Burk and retired Museum Educator from Fort Pitt Museum at Point State Park, John Connolly will share stories of their travels and experiences in the West over the past 40 years. Peter supports various non-profits on the Pine Ridge Reservation and and John runs a high school art camp for Lakota youth and his own non-profit is Warriors of the Lakota (Friends).Find out more »
