Great story about this collaborative project between the Lakota tribe, and National Geographic Magazine.

 

How National Geographic Used Cowbird Storytelling Tool to Tell a Reservation’s Whole Story: ”To make a really great narrative [in print] often means only telling the story of a couple of people, and trying to use those stories to tell the larger story of the community and where it’s going,” Huey said. “That’s often confusing for the community itself. People always asked me why I couldn’t fit in something about the all-star basketball team, or the scholars going on to college. Everyone wanted something specific and claimed that I was missing the entire story because I didn’t have those things. They felt like they were misrepresented. They felt like for decades in the media, they’d been misrepresented.”
