Eight of us ventured from Columbus, Ohio to Canon Ball, North Dakota over Thanksgiving weekend. We brought with us a trailer filled with food, horse feed, clothing, and other supplies for donations. While there were restrictions on photography in the camp, I did take some pictures in accordance with the rules--all pictures containing people had to have consent of all within it, and pictures were not allowed of sacred spaces or ceremonies.
