PineRidge, Indian Reservation
South Dakota

Dates of Trip: October 2008
Status: Completed! 


The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is situated in Shannon & Jackson Counties which is said to be two of the poorest counties in the United States. With the unemployment rate over 80%, poverty is widespread and the need for cheap or free electricity is high. Many of the homes in this Indian Reservation don’t have reliable electricity and solar power will provide a safer and more stable lifestyle for those in need.
