Native Americans whose lives have been affected by suicide or have worked to stem suicide on the reservation talk about the problem and what solutions might be necessary.
A map of Montana's Indian reservations fills the background as Don Wetzel Jr. talks about suicide on Indian reservations in Montana. Wetzel, a member of the Blackfeet Tribe, describes the rate of suicide among Native Americans is an "epidemic."
Five outstanding Indian athletes will be honored Friday at a ceremony inducting them into the Montana Indian Athletic Hall of Fame.
