The Great Paradox of Native American Reservations

In the poem “When The Light of The World Was Subdued,” author, Layli Long Soldier, Oglala Lakota, retells the forced removal of the Sioux tribe from their vast land by the U.S. government, and crowded onto a small reservation in Minnesota. This project will address the complications that Native Americans experience while living on a modern day reservation, such as poverty, domestic violence, and alcoholism.
