Canku Luta Soup Kitchen — Serving Lakota Elders & Children

The Tokalas have identified a building on the Pine Ridge Reservation for conversion into a soup kitchen for Lakota Oyate elders and children. Canku Luta has found an architect and submitted proposals for the renovation of the building and hiring of grassroots staff. We are looking for funds to purchase commercial kitchen equipment and furniture (in-kind donations are, of course, very welcome). Also, Canku Luta is seeking the donation of a van to bring elders to the center and to deliver meals to homebound elderly. The soup kitchen will also provide a coffee shop for hours between meals and during the evening where elders can meet. There will be special meals and times for elders and children to come together, so that Lakota children can learn their language and their stories. We invite your support of this effort. Please send us your email address ( so that we can keep you updated on the progress of the soup kitchen.
