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
Our Next Steps
The Charging Buffalo facility is just one step of many to develop sustainable foods on Pine Ridge Reservation.
- Making traditional meats available for the Food Program
- Local produce from Lakota gardens
- Creating local employment
- Keeping funds on the reservation
It will be a game-changer in ending hunger.

One Spirit Service Coordinators live in various parts of the US and Europe. Through their use of telephones, computers, web cams, technology and visits to the Reservation, they are able to learn about and become friends with the Lakota, help sponsors understand the Lakota culture (and vice versa), and help meet the needs of Lakota families and elders for food, heat, and urgent situations. While doing these things, they are also an integral part of helping OS meet the goal of ending hunger on the Reservation and providing for the youth.
