The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in south-western South Dakota consistently ranks among the most impoverished areas in the USA. A large reservation, mostly inhabited by members of the Oglala Lakota tribe, Pine Ridge struggles with widespread alcoholism, lack of economic development and geographical isolation. Residents face an impossibly difficult choice between remaining loyal to their culture by staying on the reservation or pursuing a potentially improved quality of life by leaving it.
