One By One Campaign

November 1st begins our One By One year-end fundraising campaign! One By One we can make a difference in the lives of those living in third world conditions. Each one of us can do something to help! Last year, One By One, you helped us raise over $57,000.00 and you made a difference in the lives of 30,000 people living in Indian Country. This year our goal is to raise $75,000.00 to help make a greater impact than ever before! Consider making a special year-end donation or recurring donation of $25.00, $50.00, $100.00 or whatever you can afford to help us meet our goal. We simply cannot do it without each one of you!

Join SunWater Spa and One Nation Walking Together for a special screening of ‘Rising Voices’, part of the One Nation Film Festival

Though the Lakota nation has over 170,000 tribal members, only 6000 of them speak Lakota today. The average age of the native speakers is now almost 70. But Rising Voices/Hótȟaŋiŋpi. depicts an exhilarating effort by both Lakota and non-Indian people to hold back the floodwaters of history: the day-by-day struggle to save a dying language.

Florentine Films/Hott Productions, in association with The Language Conservancy, presents a new documentary project: Rising Voices/Hótȟaŋiŋpi. Five years in the making, this multi-platform project tells the story of a powerful threat to a Native culture. This threat is an insidious, impersonal villain – one that comes through TV sets and social media sites, through Tweets and comic strips and the daily news. The menace is the English language, and the victim seemingly marked for extinction is the Lakota language itself – the language of the Lakota nation, once usually called the Sioux. For the Lakota people, it’s a local problem, but it’s just one instance of a massive global one – a worldwide epidemic of language extinction.

“If you knew the conditions…”

Approximately 1.5 million Native Americans and Alaskan Natives live on designated reservations in the United States today. All but a few of these reservations are plagued with poverty, unemployment, homelessness, lack of medical care, and insufficient educational resources. Many experience historical trauma, discrimination and feelings of hopelessness. There is pervasive hunger. Some children’s only meals are those served while in school.

Suicide

Suicide rates are more than double, and Native teens experience the highest rate of suicide of any population group in the United States via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death—and 2.5 times the national rate—for American Indian/American Native youth in the 15-24 age group.

Diabetes

Diabetes incidence is 177 percent higher, with the highest rate of type 2 diabetes of any specific population in the U.S. via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.

Graduation Rate

The national graduation rate for American Indian high school students was 49.3 percent for the 2003-2004 school year, compared with 76.2 percent for white students via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.

High school dropout rates for American Indian American Native youth are double the national average via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.

Life Expectancy

Recent reports state the average life expectancy on the Pine Ridge Reservation is 45 years old while others state that it is 48 years old for men and 52 years old for women. With either set of figures, this is the shortest life expectancy for any community in the Western Hemisphere outside Haiti, according to The Wall Street Journal via American Indian Humanitarian Foundation.
