Review for ONE Spirit, Rapid City, SD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm a retired Mohawk Metis elder, that attends Powwows in the Northeast as a vendor to raise money for One Spirit. 100% of the money that I generate goes to One Spirit, to purchase food, for the families, at Pine Ridge Reservation, in South Dakota. This organization is very transparent about where the money is spent and is dedicated to making the Lakota self sufficient.

Review for ONE Spirit, Rapid City, SD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've volunteered for One Spirit, for over 5 years. I'm a vendor at Native American Powwows, and donate the gross earnings from each powwow that I vend at, in southeastern New England. Not one person at One Spirit earns a salary. Each and everyone of us volunteer, because we believe in the organization. We can see first hand the victories that we achieve, against the poverty on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, in South Dakota. I too am Indian (Mohawk) and it feels mighty good to help my brothers and sisters of the Lakota Tribe.

Rating: 5 stars  

I do Native American Powwow's in Southeastern New England. As a vendor, 100% of the money I raise from my booth, goes to One Spirit to assist them in meeting their goals, of feeding families, and supplying wood for the winter. Do I need to do this? Heck no, but I need to do this. I'm a Haudenosaunee (Mohawk) Metis Elder and I'm retired. While I'm not rich, I have all the essential things that I need in life. One Spirit supplies me with some merchandise. People donate items for me to resell, and I supply many items to resell, and the proceeds go to One Spirit. This is my fifth year and I'm really gratefull that I still have my health to do this. I also get great enjoyment out of turning people on to One Spirit and the Oglala Lakota Sioux. I couldn't think of a better cause to dedicate myself to. One Spirit is the reason that I get out of bed in the morning. It's certainly better than wasting away in a bar room!
