Dacotah Tipis – Habitat for Humanity Annual Appeal – 2020

Greetings from Dacotah Tipis!

This year, 2020, was an unfortunate one for our Habitat. We had seven groups signed up to volunteer, but because Covid-19 struck the Crow Creek Reservation in the spring, the Tribal Council asked that no volunteers come at all. They canceled pow-wow and closed the Tribal casino.

As you can imagine, in often crowded conditions in homes on the Reservation, coronavirus can spread quickly. As of this day, June 12, 2020, there have been 39 cases of Covid-19 in the county where most of the Crow Creek Reservation is.

The groups who had planned to come included Baldwin Wallace University (Ohio), the First Unitarian Society of Minneapolis, two medical school students (Virginia), the Pleasant Hill Church of God (Ohio), a Habitat for Humanity (South Carolina), our longest-standing volunteers from the Olivet Congregational Church (Minnesota) the Native Children’s Support (Denmark), and another long-standing volunteer and her family (New York City).

The Board of Directors of Dacotah Tipis Habitat extends their heartfelt thanks to these groups. We ask you all to consider coming in 2021.

Thank you.

Bob Werner
