Lower Brule Teen Featured in New York Times

Check out "A Fighting Chance" at the New York Times. It's a video about 18-year-old Cheryl Zeigler, a single mother on the Lower Brule Reservation who is trying to make a name for herself in boxing. 

The story talks about  Zeigler, her trainer Ray Hawk, founder of the Native American Warriors Pro Boxing Network, and Hawk's son, Shawn. All three are hoping boxing will help them stay on the right track and escape some of the hard times they face on the reservation.
