Sorry for emailing you out of the blue, but I am the US Correspondent of
the British newspaper The ********. I am doing a story for my newspaper's
magazine on the disparate experience of Native Americans in modern America.
I was hoping to illustrate one side of the piece by spending a day or two
on Pine Ridge.
I came across your blog and would love to meet up with you. I would also
appreciate any advice or contacts you could give me about what to see or
who to speak to on Pine Ridge. I am fully aware that a journalist turning
up somewhere unnannounced is never a good idea, especially when the issues
involved are things like healthcare, poverty and unemployment.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Tel * *** *** ****
PS - I really like the blog by the way.
Of course I left out his name and the paper's name and telephone #. But OMFG...if anyone reads my blgospot I had just asked how the hell do we bring issues from my reservation into the light. What a wonderful opportunity and an awesome day this turned out to be!
