As we have done for many years, Lakota Kidz members participated in the National Day of Mourning on Thursday, November 23, 2017 (U.S. Thanksgiving Day). This annual observance, held in Plymouth, Mass. ("America's Home Town") since 1970, convenes local American Indians, their allies of all races, and Indigenous people from all the Americas. The National Day of Mourning calls attention to the struggle to create a true awareness of Native peoples and demonstrate the unity of Indigenous communities internationally. Native speakers shatter the untrue glass image of the Pilgrims and a system based on racism, sexism, homophobia and war. Lakota Kidz supports this event with many hours of labor, including assisting with the march and the potluck social, photographing the event, and staffing our literature table. More hands are always welcome. National Day of Mourning is organized by United American Indians of New England, www.uaine.org.
Lakota Kidz is dedicated to making the brutal Pine Ridge winters a little warmer for the Lakota Sioux living in Wanblee, South Dakota, the poorest town in one of the poorest counties in the nation. We are staffed entirely by volunteers and funded solely by our fundraising initiatives, private donations and grants.
