an adventure east for Atmos magazine to document the Black Hills; in these 35mm and 120mm film stills, there's:

  • Bear Lodge 
  • the Six Grandfathers
  • Black Elks Peak
  • Bear Butte
  • Wind Cave 

...then I stayed in the badlands before coming home. Self portraits and a little scenic film at the end. 

FROM 'The Ties That Bind'

Ruth H. Hopkins states "sacred sites are Indigenous places of worship, our outdoor cathedrals. In the modern era, they have been consistently targeted for destruction by racist demagogues, extractive industries, and those who are otherwise estranged from their spiritual selves and see only dollar signs."

All taken on the ancestral lands of the Apaalooké, the Cheyenne, and Očeti Šakówin.
