She was born on June 28, 1998 in Valentine, Nebraska and is the daughter of Lonnie and Roanna (Reding) Garland. Tristan had a spitfire attitude and an adventurous spirit.

Tristan often traveled back to her grandparents’ South Dakota farm, where she enjoyed playing on the haystacks and riding four-wheelers.

A special thank you to the Minnesota Women’s Indian Resource Center and the Mino Oski Ain Dah Young Center and all the people who touched her life.
