My hunka brother Ted Eagle and his family live on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation in South Dakota in one of the most economically challenged areas of our country.
This November we are trying to bring Ted and his family to Florida for a cultural exchange opportunity.
Most of Ted’s family have not been far from the Cheyenne River Reservation for any length of time, if at all, and many of the residents in SW Florida have never been to the Lakota Nations of the Great Plains.
The Eagle family children are accomplished, competition winning Pow Wow dancers and singers and are willing to share their talents with the children and families of SW Florida.
Ted Eagle is construction supervisor for Okiciyapi Tipi Housing Partnerships and organizes the renovation and repairs of some of the Habitat for Humanity homes for those families with the greatest needs on the Reservation.
Apart from being a former U.S. Marine who served this country, Ted makes himself available to family, friends and even strangers selflessly and is constantly making his community a better place to live for everyone.
I can not think of a better way to say thank you to one of the most generous, considerate and loving families I have ever met in my life.
I need your support to make this happen for them and for all of us here in SW Florida.
Any amount is appreciated and those donating $100 or more will receive a personal thank you, a link to the video from the cultural exchange program set for November 19th featuring the Eagle Family and a Native Now Nation T-Shirt.
