Mitakuye is excited to be sponsoring this prayer run from Pine Ridge to Standing Rock! The youth will run from the center of Pine Ridge reservation to Eagle Butte then on to Standing Rock and will finish at the Oceti Sakowin Camp where they will camp out and join with water protectors from tribes around the globe! We will have cameras for the youth to document their experiences and will help them edit together a short film in our fall workshop!
We will be running with special prayers for our beloved friend Tabria Red Cloud who just made her journey.
Come pray and run and be a part of this historical gathering. Runners please contact Rick Gray Grass Ricky Sage at the number listed on the flyer for details. Donations can be sent via http://mitakuyefoundation.com/donations/ (please note “Standing Rock Prayer Run”)
And big thanks to Lo Sprague and Meera LeVine for being instrumental in helping to make this happen!
We are changing our name to MITAKUYE!
We will be shifting over our paperwork to the new spelling over the next few months but are happy to let everyone know that we are now officially The Mitakuye Foundation!
All of us here at Mitakupi are feeling heartbreak today as one of our students Tabria L. Red Cloud makes her journey. What a beautiful spirit! Always a smile on her face. Always ready to jump in and be of help. Always ready to try something new. We hold Tabria and her family and all of her BEAR family in our thoughts and prayers.
Congratulations to all of our winners!!
