Food Security is a basic human right

According to the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, accessible food is the right of every person. However First Nations people, like the Lakota have been denied this right due to social and economic exclusion.

Food orders due: Friday, January 22    Food day: Saturday, January 30


The Lakota are ending the cycle of denial and exclusion by developing their own sources of food. They are returning to what has sustained them physically and spiritually for millennia - Tatanka, the buffalo.

Making Food Accessible

One Spirit is working with the Tribal Department of Parks in the development of a plan for integrating buffalo into the food program. While we don't know all of the details yet, we know that it will drastically improve access to food.

Your support is paving the way to end hunger. The Lakota are closer than ever to achieving self-reliance and having a sustainable way to feed their people.

Give the gift of food - a gift that lasts a lifetime

Families and elders are coming to us to ask for food. This is the time of the month when food has run out and the only food many children get is when they are at school. 

Hunger is particularly devastating to children, because its harmful effects can last a lifetime. It is critical that children have the nutrition they need. But with your help we are getting food to them.

Right now we are working to get a sustainable system in place so that the Lakota can meet the needs of their people. Together we are ending hunger in Pine Ridge.


Thank you for all the help you have given and for what you can do now.
