Many Lakota families from the Pine Ridge Reservation face extreme winters on the South Dakota plains with no heat. In February, Ty Olson will ski the Minnesota-Ontario border in support of One Spirit’s Wood Program. This is one of the harshest winter landscapes in the United States with temperatures down to -40 degrees.

Donations to this cause may be made at the Ski for Fire website.

The Onaway Trust has supported many projects on the Pine Ridge Reservation. For an update on this project, see Projects.
