Filmmaker Doug Good Feather and Lakota Way Healing Center Hold Coat Drive
For those of us here at AWAKE, our communities mean everything to us. They teach us who we are, they care for us when we have trouble caring for ourselves, and they give us strength. That's why it's so important that we are active and thoughtful members of our communities. Recently, filmmaker Doug Good Feather, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, held a coat drive and holiday dinner through the Lakota Way Healing Center in Denver, CO! He later took the coats and toys gathered back up to Standing Rock for distribution. Doug and everyone at the Lakota Way Healing Center work tirelessly to help heal and build with the people of Denver. To learn more about LWHC and to find out how you can help, please visit their Facebook page or their website!
