The People of the  Lakota, Nakota and Dakota People adopted the Sacred Horse, [ Sunka Wakan ] into their nation and into their families.

“It is part of who we are. It is hard in our ways to remember our lives with out our Horses. They are part of our family. We give them names and honor them. They take part in our ceremonies. They are part of our lives, not only for transportation but also the Sunka Wakan help heal our minds, bodies and spirits." -David Swallow, Wowitan Yuha Mani

The OLCERI program on Pine Ridge Reservation is focused on restoring our relationship to the earth. One focus of the program is to rescue horses, train them for EQUINE THERAPY. Healing this connection to the horse is part of our prayer for native youth. 

"As a center for higher indigenous education that uses permaculture practices, our mission is to restore resilience, self-sufficiency, economic independence, and cultural revitalization among the Lakota on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation while sharing our knowledge and research with other communities seeking assistance.

As you may know, the winters in the Dakotas are fierce - getting as low as -50F! Horses need hay to sustain them through winter months out here. The ranch has a hay bailer that is broken and we'd like to help get that fixed by summer so that next winter we will have hay, as well as afford the supplies to get them through this winter which has already begun to set in.

Our goal  is to raise  $5000 to purchase 2 truck loads of hay ($3200) and  support  the cost of fixing the PTO on the tractor (around $2000). 

All love offerings will support our OLCERI horse family in rescuing, training, feeding and caring for the horses as well as supporting the future growth of our mission to  heal mind, body and spirit through horses and their medicine.  We're grateful for all gifts and prayers.
