NORTH SIOUX CITY, S.D. (KCAU) – One man is walking a thousand miles to bring awareness to the conditions on a South Dakota Tribe.

Mike Rains started his trail in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, back on May 5. We caught up with him in North Sioux City.

He said the goal is to bring awareness to the staggering number of homelessness and desperate conditions on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Rains hopes to raise a dollar for every step which will go towards a non-profit that will turn shipping containers into tiny homes for the over populated households on the Res.
