Support OS while Shopping
Now you have the great opportunity to raise money for One Spirit while you are shopping without paying more for your products. Click on the link below to learn how it works.
The Sponsorship program has always been an important OS program that brings assistance directly to families and elders and also promotes inter-cultural understanding and friendship. Both families and sponsors tell us frequently how much it means to them. Both seem to gain equal benefits from the program. There are about 800 sponsors in the program at this time and about 1000 children and elders on the waiting list hoping for a sponsor. The children and elders on the program have urgent needs for warm clothing, blankets, shoes, food and other basic needs.
Quotation of the week
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Dream catcher for Donors
This month you have the change to get a three-dimentional dream catcher which was made by an Oglala Lakota currently imprisoned in South Dakota. This dream catcher is a real piece of art.
For every $5 donation, you will be entered in a drawing for this beautiful dream catcher. The more you donate, the more changes you'll get to be the lucky new owner of this wonderful dream catcher. All proceeds from this event will be used for buying Holiday food for the Lakota people. The drawing will end at 12:00 midnight EST and the dream catcher will be mailed to the winner Saturday, November 22nd.
Ground breaking for Allen Youth Center
We are so excited to get these first photos of the ground being cleared for the Allen Youth Center. Today a groundbreaking ceremony is being held although the temperature is 20 degrees and it is snowing. The community is celebrating.
The youth center has been the stuff of dreams and hard work for a couple of years. The building and programs are a promise to Lakota youth – recognition that they are the future of the Lakota nation and that they will have the help they need to carry forward the traditions and responsibilities of their people.
The center will be opened in the Spring and you are invited to the ceremonies.
Our plan continues. We must now furnish this youth center and then proceed to build such a place within reach of every youth on the reservation.
At this time of year, we give thanks for what we have been able to do together. Let's continue our success.
