Hail Damage

At Thanksgiving time many people give thanks for what they have, and share something with others who have not been as fortunate.

Yesterday I mentioned my friends Foxy and Alton Onefeather live near Lower Brule, where the annual memorial ride to the site where the hanging of 38 Native men in Mankato, Minnesota, occurred in 1862.

This is a link to a story about Alton. The link includes some video he took on the First Nation-Famer Climate Unity March. He said “The land being sold is around bear butte it is a sacred place to the natives yes it will affect my heart n spirit knowing people are gonna be putting biker bars n clubs close or around it.” https://jeffkisling.com/2019/07/08/alton-onefeather-on-bear-butte/

Unfortunately a severe hail storm with baseball size hail destroyed their garden and damaged the solar power system recently.

I’ve never asked for donations before, but if you would like to donate, you can find the fundraiser here: https://www.facebook.com/donate/543477606230270/
