This is a fundraiser for the Yellow Hair family.
Thomas Dwight Yellow Hair recently passed away at his home in Helsinki, Finland. It was his wish to be buried with his family in Wounded Knee on the Oglala lands of Pine Ridge, South Dakota. The costs of international transportation for a deceased person is approximately $10,000, in addition to other costs such as airline costs for Thomas’s 3 children to fly from Finland to be with their father, and the family is asking for assistance.
Thomas was born December 3, 1957. Thomas was a Sun Dancer, Pipe Carrier and activist. He danced at Green Grass and with Fools Crow. He was on the first of the Longest Walks from Alcatraz to Washington, DC in 1978.
Thomas is second from the right in the picture.
All funds donated are deposited directly into the bank account of Thomas' older brother, Milo Yellow Hair, and will be used for paying the costs of transporting Thomas home and the funeral, and other funeral expenses.
A special thanks to Mark Levitan for the crafting of this fundraiser, and his years of dedication to serving our Indigenous relatives.
