Two people taking part in the Fort Laramie treaty ride put up a teepee for an overnight stop in Fort Robinson outside of Crawford, Nebraska, U.S., April 23, 2018. Stephanie Keith: "The raising of teepees along the ride was unusual. Normally, people slept either in the back of a horse trailer, in their car, in a tent, in a provided shelter like a community centre and on some occasions, in a local motel." STEPHANIE KEITH/REUTERS
