A path to Healing through the Spirit of the Horse: Wraparound + Equine Therapy

Announcing a new System of Care Crowdfunding Proposal

Creating a path to healing through the spirit of the horse »

Crowdfunding is an internet-based method of raising funds from private citizens.

Our System of Care friend Jon Eagle from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in the Dakotas has been using his own resources to create an innovative model to address youth issues within Indian Country. This model blends culturally modified equine therapy, wraparound, and system of care principles. Jon says:

"We aren't doing this for ourselves, we're doing this for our people. Unfortunately, many live outside of our way of life and are suffering. We do this to help them to center themselves and reconnect with who they really are, everyone has a place in our tiospaye, our caring community. It is our belief that we are still connected to our ancestors, we have a genetic memory. At one time in our history, our ancestors were considered to have been one of the greatest light cavalries in the world, their horsemanship was legendary. A warrior and his horse were a powerful weapon, but today they've come back into our lives as healers"

Please go to our page on the Indiegogo website to read about the project and see how to donate to support this important project.
