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.
