Common Ground Campus Ministry is organizing a service/cross-cultural trip to Pine Ridge Reservation in western South Dakota during UW-L’s spring break. The goal of the trip is to build relationships between the college students and people on the reservation with the hope to make this trip an annual event every spring break. We will be following the scheduling and priorities of our hosts, so the schedule will not be well-defined as is usually the case with VIM and other types of mission trips. Sleeping will be on the floor of fellowship hall of the church on the reservation. We will cook for our group using church kitchen facilities
This trip will be March 12 – 18. There will be three days of learning about Lakota culture & history (Sunday – Tuesday). There will be also one day of “tourist” activities in the Black Hills with students (Wednesday). Some service projects will be decided on-site. We need a few people with construction/carpentry skills & tools to lead projects. Anyone interested in supporting the students by helping lead projects, please contact Anna-Lisa Hunter by February 10 at 608-799-4547 or email at email@example.com.
