Yet, hidden away in Pine Ridge, South Dakota, lies an entire Native American population living in conditions equivalent to those found among the poorest third world countries.

Teen Suicide: Pine Ridge Reservation

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, teen suicide is the third-leading cause of death for young people ages 15 to 24. Tragically, this statistic has proven to be far worse on many Native American reservations throughout North America. Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, the second largest reservation in the nation, is considered home to nearly 29,000 Lakota Sioux Tribe members.
In a recent Huffington Post article, it was found that nearly 1,000 suicide attempts were recorded on Pine Ridge Reservation between 2004 and 2013. Greg Yoder, reporter for MNN, stated that tribal officials confirmed nine teens were successful in committing suicide this past year, one being as young as 12 years old.
So what is causing this increase in teen suicide in Pine Ridge?
