High school grad receives Girl Scout’s highest award
BROOKFIELD – Although they live in the United States, residents of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation might as well be half a world away.
While watching a television documentary, Erika Zenchak of Brookfield found she knew little about the Oglala Sioux Indians who make their home at Pine Ridge in South Dakota. And she figured other young people like her were unfamiliar with the hardships people in this reservation endure.
“We don’t often learn about life on reservations,” Zenchak said. “I saw a documentary on TV that talked about that particular reservation. It had interviews with the people who lived there about how they live. The documentary really inspired me to become more involved.”
