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.

Betty was an enrolled member of the Choctaw Tribe of Oklahoma and her daughter, Jana Over has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to One Spirit programs. Her obit will appear in the Washington Post on Sunday, May 5, 2019.
One Spirit is humbled to be included in this circle of compassion and gifts in Betty’s honor will provide food and necessities to Lakota families.
