Elk Sage runs an innovative program that uses Native American culture and love of horsemanship to engage youth in discussions about suicide and substance abuse prevention on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming. The Northern Arapaho Horse Culture class empowers participants to take control of their lives and find self-expression through riding, talking circles, traditional prayer and teamwork.
Suicide causes immeasurable pain, suffering, and loss to individuals, families and communities nationwide. But suicide is preventable, so it's important to know what to do.
