Our New Home on the Rez
We're now only $5,000 away from owning the land for our next home on Pine Ridge!
For the first time in our history, Re-Member will have a place of our own on the Rez. 100 acres of varying landscape that was formerly a small cattle ranch outside of Porcupine, will eventually become our new home on Pine Ridge. We lovingly refer to the property as "Feather II."
Land ownership on the Rez is a funny thing: we are sensitive to the fact that our land ownership occupies more space that is not open to the Lakota people, and is contrary to their historical and cultural understanding of the communal nature of land, but we also know that the opportunity for us to establish a long-term permanent presence on the Rez is essential to the work that we do and the continued development of trusting relationships.
We have raised, in cash and pledged giving, all but $5,000 of the purchase price of the land! Can you help us reach that mark?
As an old working ranch, the property has its share of junk that has piled up over the years. Re-Member staff and members of the Board, along with volunteers have been hard at work this season recycling scrap metal, removing garbage, and sorting through buildings worth of "treasures."
We're also hard at work discerning and planning our next steps. Your donation will help us reach that critical next point. Please, donate today, to ensure the vital work of Re-Member continues.
