Among the things tribe members need are shoes. Soles for Souls came to mind as a good organization to get involved with this drive to help the Sioux tribe. It boggles my mind that our government still does so little to help our first people.
Specifically the Sioux tribe needs activists to get involved:
(1) Please call your two Senators (Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121)
(2) Ask for the staffer working on the Jobs Bill or their “water appropriations” staffer
(3) Ask them/Or leave a message asking for $90 million to the Army Corps for the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe water infrastructure project
(4) Any additional calls to the United States Department of Agriculture, the Department of Interior, or the White House are also helpful
There has been so little in news about this and that in my opinion is simply shameful.
