Elder in ill health needs some clothing

One Spirit | Porcupine, SD
This Lakota elder has lived a full life. In his younger days, he was on the rodeo circuit, riding bulls and winning a couple of buckles. After he retired, he went to trade school to learn construction. He had promised his mother he would learn a trade, and he said she raised him right. Unfortunately, he has a lung disease now and can't work. He has to stay close to home, especially with COVID now. He lives in a small cabin heated with a wood stove. His neighbors help him out. His Christmas wish is to have some new cowboy Wranglers and socks.
