15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Youth from Watford, North Dakota celebrate the 4th of July.

Jamison, Jade, Gregory and Nick, throw rocks at their friends swimming in the distance, celebrating the 4th of July holiday on the Fort Berthold Reservation, 3 July 2017, North Dakota. The group is saying goodbye to one of their friends, Logan, who leaves in two days for boot camp for the Marines. His grandpa inspired him, and he didn’t want to work on the oil elds.
