A recent op-ed in the New York Times detailed a program originally developed by the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) which is exactly the concept we of One Spirit try to follow in our efforts to better and more fully serve the Oglala Lakota of the Pine Ridge Reservation.
Summer is here ---- but this summer there are critical changes. The schools in Allen do not have money for the usual summer meals for the kids. Allen Youth Center, with the support of One Spirit, is now serving food daily. It is with your help that the kids have a nutritious meal daily, cooked and served by caring Lakota adults.

Betty was an enrolled member of the Choctaw Tribe of Oklahoma and her daughter, Jana Over has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to One Spirit programs. Her obit will appear in the Washington Post on Sunday, May 5, 2019.
One Spirit is humbled to be included in this circle of compassion and gifts in Betty’s honor will provide food and necessities to Lakota families.
