  • Every year in September, a memorial horse ride is held here on the reservation. This is done in memory of a Lakota man named Asanpi Bleza, or “Thin Milk”. He was killed over a century ago by some white ranchers in the area. The ride starts in the village of Red Shirt, and continues through the broken country of the Badlands. In this picture, these young men are riding back up out of the Badlands toward the end of the ride. I have participated in this ride a few times, and I really enjoy it.
