Oglala Sioux tribal member, Truman Scholar, Gates Millennium Scholarship recipient and Villanova Presidential Scholar Keith Martinez is also Chair of Lakota Children's Enrichment's Youth Advisory Board on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Keith talks with us about how he was able to travel from the Pine Ridge Reservation to one of the richest counties in the country on the strength of his hard work and determination - and offers his opinion on how other Lakota students can follow that same path.
