Donations for the building campaign are accepted through the National Indian Youth Leadership Project. niylp.org (tax-deductable)
Facebook: Lakota Healthy Start
The highest infant mortality rate (IMR) in the country is on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, home to the Oglala Lakota. 13 babies die out of every 1000 live births.
Healthy Start is a program that lowers the IMR to just 5 deaths per 1000 live births, below the USA national average of 7 deaths per 1000 live births.
The Healthy Start Program was forced to leave their offices due to high levels of asbestos. What was given to them as a replacement office was a mold-infested trailer with holes in the roof.
The Healthy Start Building Campaign Team is committed to building a culturally-relevant, sustainable, off-the-grid building that will serve as an icon of hope where the unemployment is as high as 85%.
We hope that you will join us on Indie GoGo and not only donate, but help spread the world about this issue.
Thank you, Kitty Farmer for the Healthy Start Building Campaign Team - Ritch, Michael, Eric, Henry, Donald, Roberta, Lacey and Mac.

In June 2012, Norm Hann paddled 350km along the east coast of Haida Gwaii. Over 8 days of continuous paddling, Norm and the STAND crew visited the 5 Haida Watchmen sites and spent time learning about the Haida culture and their fears for the Enbridge pipeline and tanker route.
The crew is currently raising funds through the popular crowd-sourcing platform IndieGoGo, in order to complete post-production and bring this story into the mainstream consciousness. You can become a champion of the Great Bear and help protect our precious coastlines by donating to the project and in return receive some great rewards at indiegogo.com/standfilm

Over 8 days of continuous paddling, Norm and the STAND crew visited the 5 Haida Watchmen sites and spent time learning about the Haida culture and their fears for the Enbridge pipeline and tanker route. The expedition was part of the STAND where the crew documented the landscape and wildlife of the region and the peoples connection to it. The expedition was made possible in part by the support of Quiksilver Waterman and the Quiksilver Foundation.
