[Episcopal News Service – Red Shirt Table, South Dakota] Leena Fofonoff, a Skolt Sami from Lapland, says that Taizé gave her the chance to meet Lakota people and learn that the struggles of the two indigenous groups are similar. By coming to the May 24-27 Taizé “pilgrimage of trust on earth” on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Fofonoff says she has been able to worship with young adults her own age.
