Update on the Elder Wood Project

This month, Follow the Buffalo, Inc., was pleased to contribute to the Elder Wood Project.  The donated funds enabled Arlin Whirlwindhorse, the leader of the project to purchase 2 new chainsaws.

Wopila, Thank you!

We are so grateful for your generous responses to our call for help at Follow the Buffalo.  We wanted to let you know that your help allowed us to purchase 2 Stihl chainsaws to aid the work of the Elder Wood Project.  These sawswill help put a crew of 5 young men to work cutting, splitting, and delivering badly needed firewood to seniors on the Pine Ridge Reservation.  This is just a first step in this process, but a very important step that will make an immediate impact in the community.  We will keep you posted on the progress of this project.
