Featured Service

Reservations on the Northern Plains can be bitterly cold and biting winds regularly gust up to 50 mph. Under such conditions, exposed flesh can freeze in less than a minute.

When money for fuel has run out, residents have been known to burn clothing or furniture, or hang blankets at the door and stay in one room, in anxious attempts to stay warm.
