Pine Ridge poetry program poised for the big time
PINE RIDGE, S.D. - An after school poetry program on the Pine Ridge Reservation sends teams to international competitions and is showing such promise that a national spoken word organization wants to take it to Native communities across the country.
Brandie Macdonald runs the Dances with Words program with students from Little Wound, Crazy Horse and the Red Cloud School.
Groups meet once a week and develop a variety of skills.
