    Since the Buche Company came to Pine Ridge Reservation, there has been a huge improvement in the quality of the groceries, the cleanliness of the store, and the choices made available to the Lakota people. RF worked with One Spirit and his staff to develop an area dedicated to the hygiene and household supplies that the people needed but could not purchase with EBT. In conjunction with One Spirit, he made these supplies available at a huge discount. He has helped us not only get the food we need for the food program which provides food through food pantries and the Suicide Prevention Program, but also to get at discount the appliances, garden equiptment, and tools needed for the programs on the Reservation.

RF has demonstrated his deep respect for the Lakota people and for all Native Americans and frequently voices his passion to ensure that they are treated equally with all Americans. We at One Spirit share his passion for equality and are excited to work with him to see that goal realized.

The support given by RF and the Buche Company to our Gregory Community has proven to be very helpful and it has helped make our community a better place to live in.

    About The Underdog Foundation

    In 2013, RF Buche decided to change the Buche Foods Scholarship program that was offered to area high school seniors. To encourage and help kids going to college that maybe weren’t the best athlete or at the top of their class, RF created The Underdog Scholarship. This scholarship is directed towards kids that managed to overcome a seemingly unsurmountable obstacle in their path to adulthood with grace and sheer grit.

    After only one year of offering this new Underdog Scholarship, RF decided that offering scholarships to the underdogs of the community wasn’t enough. Out of a need to help more people that may be struggling with an endless barrage roadblocks life seems to be throwing at them, The Underdog Foundation was born. This foundation is aimed to help people that no matter what happens to them, they keep getting back up and dusting themselves off. The Underdog Foundation wants to be there to help pick them up.

    The Underdog Foundation is a Registered 501-c3 Non-Profit Organization.
