Honor The Treaties [1], a film by director Eric Becker, documents [2] photographer Aaron Huey [3]‘s mission to portray poverty and the struggles of the Native Lakota people of Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in the United States. Huey's original photographs are collected in the book Mitakuye Okasin [4], which was described by Mother Jones [5] as “page after page of visual poetry,” and a “work [that] makes you care about the people and the place.”

Honor the Treaties [6] is also the name of an organization – of which Huey is a member – that supports Native Indian art and rights.
