Martin Borchers Memorial Fund

Please consider a donation in memory of Martin Borchers.  Martin passed away suddenly in a car accident on May 27th. He spent much of the last year out west making a film about the Lakota Nation. That time impacted him greatly. And he impacted others out there too.  He recently became a member of a Lakota Family and participated in a Lakota Nation Documentary providing both filming and editing to the project “The Gathering of the Bundle Keepers”.  He attended the Sun Dance; few non-natives are invited. His naming ceremony was to be this August. He returned with a new sense of peace and steadiness and vision for his future.

All funds received will be donated to the Lakota People’s Law Project. The Lakota People’s Law Project partners with Native communities to protect sacred lands, safeguard human rights, promote sustainability, reunite indigenous families, and much more.
