I will be assisting with communications and fundraising for the Lakota Waldorf School and their current capital campaign.
Located in southwestern South Dakota, the Lakota Waldorf School (LWS) is an independent, nonsectarian, and tuition-free school serving children, Grades K-8, living on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
Our mission is to provide a Waldorf Education integrated with a Lakota language and culture program that helps Lakota children:
Our long-term vision is that LWS empowers some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children in the country to create positive futures for themselves, their communities, and beyond. And that our indigenous mission serves as a source of cultural and social renewal to the people of the Great Oglala Nation.

Join Stephanie Wood, a member of the Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde Community of Oregon, for our Science Saturday program. She will teach the young children in your life to use tule grass and bark from the cedar tree to make duck decoys, roses, and cords. This program is for grades K-5.
