Julian With His Son Elijah. Julian Ramirez, 27, is a single father who works at the local casino on the Standing Rock reservation. Shortly after the birth of his son, Elijah, his partner left them. Long hair is a matter of pride among American Indians. Julian has never cut his son’s hair and says that Elijah will not be allowed to do so until he turns 13. | Carlotta Cardana and Danielle SeeWalker’s Red Road Project profiles Native Americans.
