The Pine Ridge and Cheyenne River Reservations in South Dakota are part of a larger territory established for the Lakota in 1868 by the United States government and later parceled out to non-Native homesteaders and broken up into smaller tribal reservations. Today, Pine Ridge Reservation is home to about 40,000 Native Americans and Cheyenne Reservation about 20,000. According to the US Census Bureau, the reservations lie within the poorest counties in the United States.

F 38 Antoinette and her family are in urgent need of clothing and shoes. She said they also need hair ties, shampoo/conditioner, antibacterial hand soap, hand sanitizer, toothpaste/toothbrush, socks, towels. This large family is in quarantine with the Covid 19 virus and some of them are so sick that they can hardly walk. Although they live in Allen, they are quarantining in Pine Ridge but hoping to get home by next week. One Spirit brought them a small supply of hygiene items a few days ago and Antoinette could hardly walk. She was so scared but is now feeling better and hopeful she will be home soon.
