Students from Wyoming Indian High School at the immersive learning event on the Shoshone bison pasture on the Wind River Reservation.

"My favorite story I produced this year was about an education event on the Wind River Reservation. It took place outside on the Eastern Shoshone bison pasture and was such a vibrant coming together of different people and generations, all in the name of education. I loved having the opportunity to get to convey the feeling of the event through sound – bison burgers sizzling on a grill, drumming, and the hum of people talking and learning together."
