I came across this TED video of documentary photographer Aaron Huey's project on the Lakota people in South Dakota. I love to see well executed projects that have a social message as well. If it weren't for Mr. Huey, this part of our history may have continued to be ignored. He created work that is haunting and beautiful, forcing the viewer to think about the culture as it is now as well as our collective history leading up to it. Pretty rad.
