The Lakota Way Healing Village

The Leader
Doug Good Feather is from the Standing Rock Lakota Nation and a descendant of Grandpa Chief Sitting Bull.

Good Feather is the founder and spiritual leader of the Healing Hoop, Inc., a Colorado registered 501(c)3 non-profit that's been serving communities for nearly a decade.

The Project & Your Donation
This project, the Lakota Way Healing Village, is a prophecy gifted to Good Feather from a vision quest ~ a vision that the sacred Native American ways can now be shared by Good Feather to help non-natives with their healing, spirituality and connection with the earth. Your help to bring this vision to life is both urgent and profound. Your donation will help purchase the sacred land we've identified and develop a self-sustaining eco-village that's based on the spiritual practices and earth-conscious ways of the indigenous Native Americans.

The Vision
This 50-acre off-grid, self-sustaining eco-village will be a fully functioning community model that can be replicated anywhere on earth. This village and community is designed to be fully independent from outside food, fuel or finances and be a model of how to live in harmony with oneself, each other and the earth.

The Mission
Our mission is to help heal suffering, by helping people reconnect to the earth, to their passion and purpose, to their spirituality and to each other ~ these are the ways of a village. We invite people from all over the world to come to the Lakota Way Healing Village to visit, learn, heal and replicate any or all aspects of this way of life and teachings and take them home to their local communities.

The Team
In addition to our indigenous Native American spiritual practitioners, also on the team is: world renowned architects, award-winning film makers and journalists, ecological scientists and leaders in economic development. Our team is competent, qualified and capable of developing this vision and mission into reality.

Conscious Living
In the Lakota Way Healing Village, there are seven modern considerations that make up the indigenous ways of living in harmony with our earth:
    + Energy - the architectural aspects of this village have been planned with a world renowned and award-winning green-build architectural firm to be fully off-grid and energy independent. Every structure is designed to go beyond 'net-zero' and be regenerative; meaning each structure will produce more energy than it consumes and will feed that energy back into the grid.
    + Food - an innovative greenhouse is designed to produce enough organic protein, fruits and vegetables to feed more than 50 people per month.
    + Ceremony - ceremony is simply the way in which we walk in life and connect with spirit based on the teachings of the Seven Sacred Virtues of the Lakota.
    + Protection - our community will rise up to protect and shine a light on human rights violations and environmental injustice wherever and whenever it emerges. The front lines are everywhere and all the time.
    + Teaching - we have classes and workshops on spirituality, conscious living, mindful consumption and collective impact.
    + Financial - we have a comprehensive plan to farm for food and medicine. We also offer teachings, trainings and workshops on conscious living, mindful consumption and collective impact. The village will be financially independent.
    + Community - the community will house innovators and farmers that will work the permaculture, crops and medicine from the land. There are multiple artists in residence creating and developing their projects. We will host speakers, luminaries and thought leaders from around the world to come speak, host conferences and teach workshops.

If you feel the calling to support the vision of the Lakota Way Village, we need you to donate right now. The sacred property we've identified will be unavailable in just a few short weeks, so we must act now!

We are a fully accredited and established 501c3 non-profit organization, so your contribution is tax deductible.

A'ho mitakákuyepi,
Our community is now back from our Healing Hoop Sun Dance in Fort Laramie, Wyoming. The Sun Dance was powerful and big prayers were sent up. This was year three and next year will be our fourth year wopíla dance. We also prayed for our community to connect with the funds necessary for the land for the Lakota Way Healing Village.
We'd love to connect with you, so drop us a message and let us know what's on your mind.
Mitakuye Oyasin,
