Making the list more userfriendly

  Thanks to Bruce Schuman and his mad programming skills, donating to someone on the Okini list has just been simplified! This upgrade eliminates the confusion that might have plagued the old Google Docs form and speeds up our response time! YAY! Bruce Schuman 


How does it work? 

Click the link to access the list:

New Okini list

This is the beautiful, new look of the Okini list! You can choose to view just the first 20, some of the families or all of them at once. When you find a family you would like to help, "select" them by clicking their yellow box on the right.

New Form

After selecting a family, this is the next page you see. Let us know what you are sending, and fill in your contact information and "save." Next time you decide to help someone, your information will "autofill" to save you from having to re-type it!


When you have saved your information and what you are hoping to send, you will automatically receive an email with the recipient's name and mailing address. How cool is that?!?

Thank you note

Then by clicking the donation tracking link in your email, this page comes up automatically! You can also receive a receipt for your donation by clicking the "Send Receipt" option, then "SAVE my information".



Everything you post here goes straight to the database and the Okini manager, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., who is happy to answer any questions you may have about your donation.

Help with a personal touch

Streamlining the process for our wonderful donors doesn't mean the program is unmanned or impersonal... it's just easier to use!

As always, we are here to answer your questions about any part of the Okini program; the way it works, who is on the list, can I write off my donation, what should I send, etc. We welcome your comments and feedback! Please let us hear from you at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Check it out!

By simplifying the Okini donation process, we hope more people will be encouraged to use it, and more Lakota families will benefit from it.

So, please check it out, find a family you can help, and test the system! 

And as always, thank you for supporting the Oglala Lakota through ONE Spirit!
