Was picked up in Cheyenne, Wyoming for our 5-6 hour journey onto the Wind River Reservation. I will be staying for 3 weeks(or longer). As usual I will have work to get done for freelance clients, but I will also be building a website for the Tribal College and helping my friend build a non profit website to do suicide prevention, among other things, on the Rez.
My friend moved back to the rez after years in California where her family lives. This place is beautiful and rough. Peaceful and dangerous all at once. The people Arapaho and Shoshone people are kind, strong and all at once live a fragile existence in a harsh environment surrounded by politics and racism.
Much more very soon…Stay tuned.
