Friends of the Lakota Nation

2017 Holiday Trip!

The 2017 Holiday trip will be held December 16, 2017! We look forward to coming back to hold this annual event. This year we will have arts & crafts, cookie decorating, and bringing books, blankets, soup kits, hygiene kits, and other necessities for families to take home with them. Alongside these important contributions, the toy drive will continue to give kids, age newborn to 18 years, a special gift for the holiday season. If you can help us make this day a special opportunity for the Pine Ridge community, please donate. We have many ways to give: The Amazon Wishlist, through monetary donations made through Square, and with donations of gently used books, blankets and other family support supplies. Please see below for the appropriate links! Thank you for your continual support!

Get Involved!

There’s always a chance to volunteer with us! Many people have joined us on one of our trips to the reservation, especially during the holidays. The Holiday Celebration is always a great way to get involved, either through volunteering with donation organization, helping us deliver the gifts, or participating in the event! We always welcome new friends to continue our support of the Lakota Nation.

In 2012, a group of dedicated volunteers spent a day in Pine Ridge, painting a school at Wounded Knee, playing soccer, and teaching students music and arts. At the end of the day, all were touched by a great day giving back to the Pine Ridge Community. Photo Credit: Brian Nevins
