Very poorly written. More diary than journalism. An exceptionally immature, irresponsible, inexperienced, naive and incompetent "journalist." What do I mean? She goes to a reserve with an acute housing problem and has no accommodation plan; she knows the reserve is dry and takes booze in her luggage with her; she knows the unemployment rate is 90%, but decides to look for a job there; and she know single adults may not invite children into their homes unaccompanied, but does it anyway, etc.
