This is the third intergenerational mission trip to Pine Ridge, South Dakota that the First Church in Nashua, New Hampshire has sponsored. High school youth and adults participate in the service/learning experience through the Re-Member organization, and many have served on multiple trips.
Work crews helped rehab housing, built stairs, painted interiors and exteriors, built and installed outhouses, performed repairs and cleanup tasks, and helped provide an improved quality of life for reservation families in one of the poorest communities in the United States.
Immersion in the local culture included attending a Pow Wow, visits with native speakers and craftsmen, visiting Wounded Knee, touring the Red Cloud school and Oglala Lakota College, and exploring the Badlands.
