As buildings go, the Charging Buffalo facility is pretty small. But don't judge the impact it will have by its physical size.
Author Mike Sparrow has generously dedicated the proceeds of the first book of his upcoming trilogy to One Spirit for the Lakota Youth. The Manifest Destiny series goes beyond the single events of Little Bighorn and Wounded Knee shining a broader light on the many elements of that era that still impact the Lakota today.
The Charging Buffalo facility is entering the final stages of construction.
We are now installing the heating/air-conditioning and the walk-in cooler and approaching the completion of the building.
While there is still much work to be done, a generous donor is offering a giant leap forward. They will match every dollar donated to the Buffalo House, up to $20,000. Whatever amount you donate will be doubled.
By joining the Lakota to complete this project, you are helping to end hunger now and for the next generation.
The Buffalo Nation teaches us how to be a family.
They care for their very young and very old, keeping them safe in the center of the circle.
They teach us to care for and protect each other in the same way.
And by bringing the Buffalo Nation back to the Reservation, families will be strong again.
- John DuBray, Lakota Elder
