Thank you for helping us achieve another milestone in restoring basic rights and sovereignty to Lakota tribes in South Dakota, and a special thanks to A Positive Tomorrow, the experts who got us there. We are now one step closer to implementing foster care run by #Lakota, for Lakota.As of Wednesday, June 25th, five Lakota tribes - Standing Rock, Cheyenne River, Yankton, Oglala and Crow Creek - have submitted Title IV-E Applications for Federal Planning Grants. If approved, these planning grants will be used to develop the expertise, equipment and infrastructure for a Lakota-run foster care system.At this crucial juncture, we need your support to keep up the momentum! Recent press coverage has been essential in taking this groundbreaking accomplishment to a broad, nationwide audience. The Argus Leader, Rapid City Journal, and Indian Country Today Media Network have each reported on this historic event.Now, with the Title IV-E Applications in, the five tribes have only three months to demonstrate their commitment to implementing this project. This means that we will have to work even harder to convince the federal government to prioritize the South Dakota tribes and to fund their applications in early October. This is the first step in transferring federal money from the state to the tribes. Your support of our continued efforts, may it be press coverage, public outreach, research or education, will be vital to our success.Our membership drive invites you to contribute automatic monthly recurring donations. You will receive membership stickers, posters, shirts and a newsletter with all relevant updates. Experience the peace of mind that comes with helping the Lakota tribes provide a solution to the slow cultural genocide they’ve been facing for generations.Thank you again for all of the support you’ve already given to this historic journey, and thanks to the courageous tribal leaders. We are still climbing the mountain, but victory is on the horizon. With the friendship of people like you, we can see a new day coming!Wopila,Madonna Thunder HawkLakota Grandmothers Su Ta Najin Pe
