ONE Spirit and the Lakota Oyate are saddened to announce the passing of Andrew Strauss. Andy was a long-time supporter of our Food Distribution Program and Charging Buffalo Facility and the photos below show him being honored at the Grand Opening.
DATELINE: RADEBEUL, GERMANY
For our many American and international supporters, it is well known that One Spirit has several branches in countries beyond the United States. Nowhere is this more evident than in Germany, where there is a surprising amount of interest in the Wild West days of the USA, including broad interest and enthusiasm for all things Native American.

This year, the Karl-May-Festival was quite different for us. In the past years we had a stall in the middle of the festival grounds. This year however, we moved onto the festival agenda and therefore were granted a stall close to the big stage "Kleine Feder" (small feather).
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.
