Heart Butte

After a long drive in Big Sky Country, we arrived at Heart Butte Montana on Sunday night.  the mountains were and are gorgeous around us, and the school here has become our new home.  today, Monday, we were split up into two work parties. one group got to go up to the backside of Heart Butte and prepare for the Sun Dance. this is an annual and very sacred festival I’m on the Blackfeet people. we have the privilege of being here on the particular week where they’re setting everything up for this grand event. what a privilege! the rest of the group is enjoying working with the kids of the community. it’s challenging, but rewarding as well. tonight we enjoyed dancing in drumming from a local crew who has been all over the United States. you can see some of the pictures below of them and ask dancing, as well as one of the work sites around Heat Butte.
