Wisdom from a Lakota Elder

This podcast is especially dear to my heart because it is a conversation about my Grandpa Oliver Swallow.  My elder cousin Vic Swallow shares stories about him.  You will learn what it was like to live on the Pine Ridge Reservation in the early 1900’s.  Everyday life as it was then.
