It is now the fourth time that the Karl May Museum in Radebeul, Eastern Germany (which is dedicated to author Karl May who lived in the 19th century and became famous by writing novels about Native Americans and created a big interest for Native American issues in Germany, lasting until today) celebrated Thanksgiving together with the visitors in the beautiful garden of the museum. For the first time, One Spirit Germany joined in. In Germany Thanksgiving is not a national holiday as it is in the US and we also do not have a
certain date to celebrate Thanksgiving. Normally, a Thanksgiving celebration within a community or city takes place on a Sunday either in September or early October.

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.

Bitter cold is predicted for Pine Ridge Reservation. Most homes are poorly insulated and many rely on wood stoves as their sole source of heat.

RAPID CITY, South Dakota: At 3 am this morning it was 14 degrees below zero in Porcupine, South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Darvis Weston sat outside in his truck warming the engine just in case someone’s car broke down or someone needed help, so that he could go immediately to assist them without waiting for his car to warm up. And someone did need help. A lone brown-gold figure trudging through the bitter cold had six more miles to walk before reaching home when Weston spotted him and gave him a lift in his warm truck.
