DATELINE: RADEBEUL, GERMANY
For our many American and international supporters, it is well known that One Spirit has several branches in countries beyond the United States. Nowhere is this more evident than in Germany, where there is a surprising amount of interest in the Wild West days of the USA, including broad interest and enthusiasm for all things Native American.

On a recent visit to the Reservation, we were again privileged to see first-hand what your generosity provides. One Spirit is proud to support the programs that make sure food is available to the most needy.
This year, the Karl-May-Festival was quite different for us. In the past years we had a stall in the middle of the festival grounds. This year however, we moved onto the festival agenda and therefore were granted a stall close to the big stage "Kleine Feder" (small feather).
A recent op-ed in the New York Times detailed a program originally developed by the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) which is exactly the concept we of One Spirit try to follow in our efforts to better and more fully serve the Oglala Lakota of the Pine Ridge Reservation.
