Star Stories

Lakota youth from South Dakota’s Rosebud Sioux Reservation collaborate with Lakota experts and MAX teaching artists to retell their tribe’s ancestral cosmology in new media.

Photographs taken by the youth will be on display as well as a multimedia presentation that delves into specific star stories and interviews conducted by the children of figures in their community.
