Exploring uncharted waters, unfolding an evolving humanity, we bring you the last voices of Gaia.

Listen to this show here.

Carlita focuses on what needs to be remembered by America on this day (Thanks Giving), the true first American People, the Native Americans. Just three centuries ago, there were 8 million Sioux Native Americans, today there are only one hundred and fifty thousand, they are still living under repression on the “Reservation” on the Black Hills of Lakotah. Carlita introduces the photography of Aaron Huey http://www.aaronhuey.com, who worked with the Sioux people of Lakotah, to tell their story. Aaron Huey’s effort to photograph poverty in America led him to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where the struggle of the native Lakotah  people is equal to the living conditions of the Haitian People. After five years of work later, his haunting photos intertwine with a shocking history lesson in this bold, courageous talk.

Aaron Huey is a photographer for National Geographic Adventure and National Geographic Traveler magazines. His stories from Afghanistan, Haiti, Mali, Siberia, Yemen and French Polynesia (to name just a few) on subjects as diverse as the Afghan drug war and the underwater photography of sharks, can be found in The New Yorker, National Geographic and The New York Times.
