Lauren and I were toying the other day with offering the chance
for a mini-immersion excursion to Rosebud.
For those who might not be able to take a full week off work
but want to experience Lakota culture
AND offer work to the Firewood for Elders program,
we've been thinking of bringing a group out in August,
leaving St Louis on Thursday,
working Friday and Saturday chopping/splitting wood,
attending Rosebud Fair in the evenings
and returning to St Louis on Sunday.
It would be a whirlwind long weekend;
it would be hard work;
it would be HOT
(as in Dante's seventh circle of hell hot)
but it would be a great chance to experience a mini Mission
in a compressed time frame.
Give it some thought...
I suspect the cost would be $200.00.
August 24-27th, 2017.
Let's get these wood cribs filled back up again!
