  • (In this picture is my 8th grade class. Since we've come to the high school students from other schools have joined us. who are all part of my (sophomore) class.
    i look around and see the problems on this reservation. drug and alcohol abuse. suicide. overpopulated housing. and the list goes on... the thing that keeps my head high after pondering all of this is coming to school, even when i don't want to. what keeps me going is my classmates. my friends.

    Coming here was not my personal first choice (to Red Cloud). Now i'm proud of my school and happy to have come here.

    Each and every one of my classmates is usually very happy. We all brighten each other's days and enjoy each others company.

    I know we will all go to college. But one thing i really hope for is that we all come back here one day with all of the knowledge that we have gained and us it for the betterment of our home and our people. Lakota people.

    They give me hope. courage. and instill me with perseverance.

    They are all so smart and beautiful. I see so much potential resting inside.
