More About Aaron Huey: TED Talk

By now, you may have read through - and ideally donated to - the Pine Ridge Billboard Project by Aaron Huey. If you haven't, there's still time: a $10 donation will help get the project off the ground. For a little more information about Aaron Huey, you can visit his web site or view his TED Talk (Aaron Huey: America's native prisoners of war), provided below.


Aaron Huey's effort to photograph poverty in America led him to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where the struggle of the native Lakota people -- appalling, and largely ignored -- compelled him to refocus. Five years of work later, his haunting photos intertwine with a shocking history lesson in this bold, courageous talk from TEDxDU.

Thank you for watching. Namaste.
