        • Sacred Ground Trailer


          from Ludwig Schmidtpeter Added 984 7 1

          Wounded Knee is empty and quiet. No visitors come to remember. Yet there would be no United States without the persecution and expulsion for which Wounded Knee has become a symbol. At the same time, millions make the pilgrimage to Mt. Rushmore each year to worship “the shrine of democracy.” What do the Native Americans think about this perennial mass tourism that is happening on their own ground? Do the visitors know that the granite spires of the Black Hills into which the presidents were carved are sacred to the Indians of the Midwest? What happens when the perspective is reversed? When a Lakota Indian becomes the director of Mt Rushmore? When white Americans stand at the sober mass grave of slaughtered Indians? How do the tourists confront the abject poverty of the victims’ descendants? How do people live with the presence of the past in the present? Is it possible for America to come to terms with its history?

              Traumatisée par le massacre de Wounded Knee en 1890, la réserve indienne de Pine Ridge (Dakota du Sud) est aujourd'hui ravagée par d'effarants taux de chômage, d'alcoolisme et de suicide chez les moins de 18 ans. Mais en 2011, un invité inattendu est venu changer la donne sur ces terres meurtries par l'Histoire : le skateboard...

                from Red Cloud Indian School Added 905 2 0

                In a shady meadow behind the football field, four tipis stood side by side. A small fire left a thin trail of smoke drifting through the trees. Twelve students were fast asleep inside the traditional dwellings when the sun slowly rose over the hills last Tuesday at Red Cloud Indian School when they were woken up by a friendly voice: “Kiktá po!” READ THE FULL STORY: https://www.redcloudschool.org/news/2014/0622/lakota-language-camp-inspires-students-community-to-use-endangered-language This past week, Lakota language teachers and staff took on the role of counselor during the first annual Maȟpíya Lúta Owáyawa Lakȟól’iya Wičhóthi (Red Cloud Indian School Lakota Language Camp). Having been told to ‘wake up’ by the counselors, the eager students dressed and ran outside to greet the day. For four days they would be immersed in Lakota language and traditional activities, outside the the four walls of a classroom.

                    As part of the development of the design for the Art Studio building at the Cloud Horse Art Institute in South Dakota, I am doing studies on various materials for the exterior surface of the building. This video documents the tests I did using a small propane torch to burn the surface cedar wood and is based on a Japanese Technique called Yaki Sugi. Cedar is both a prized wood for the Lakota and the Japanese. Once the surface has been treated the wood requires no stains, sealers or other chemical treatments and is naturally resistant to insects. http://cloudhorse.org http://maison-orion.com
