Throughout the making of Wild Archaeology, Tracy has become very close to the Pratt family and is now a younger sister to Laura, and Audrey Pratt, whose direct cultural knowledge has been an invaluable contribution to the series. Tracy attended Sundance and Pow Wows with Laura Pratt in Sioux Valley, Manitoba and Sisseton, South Dakota, as well as participated in the Ride for Sitting Bull. Her Dakota name is Waokiya Win, meaning ‘woman who helps the people’, or ‘woman who helps all.’
