I grew up on Iroquois reservation, I knew there had to be more of us on Reddit. We should have a sub.

I'm assuming you're studying Pine Ridge, which in my experience meeting other Native humans is one of the most diffucult reservations to live on. I have heard some of the worst "stereotypical" reservation stories from this area, and from my experience, events there do not define the whole reservation system. There is absolutely a higher rate of suicide on res, but at least where I was growing up (Seneca Reservation), it was not nearly as bad as some of the stories I've heard from Pine Ridge.
