The majority of photos from my Fall Break Service Trip to the Winnebago Indian Reservation are of picturesque sunsets and sunrises, with brilliant orange orbs sinking and rising into crystal blue skies. I write these words as a student thankful to have had the opportunity to experience a small piece of the beauty of Winnebago with the only intention of sharing how things that I saw and heard touched me.
I am fortunate to have been able to live and learn in a community that has suffered injustice throughout history. Although they are the indigenous people of the United States of America, most history books only speak of Native Americans in terms of wars and treaties. Most of the time, current social inequalities and the diversity of culture between different tribes are topics that are left untouched.
