THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT of Lakota elders and the Cante Tenza delegation! Your phone calls, emails, and faxes made this critical step forward possible! Thanks as well to our legal support team. Pilamaye!
As a result of this January 29th meeting, the Senator’s have forwarded the elder’s letter to the Agency on Aging in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources. The elder’s letter demands investigation and change in the Meals for the Elderly Program on Pine Ridge!
This is an important step forward towards accountability and change. But we need to remain vigilant and keep the pressure up with U.S. Officials and bureaucrats. Please stay engaged!
