Women of the Four Winds bringing it all together
by Steve Cowley
News From Indian Country
I first met Davidica Little Spotted Horse at the American Indian Community House in New York City three days after September 11, 2001. I later learned she had organized the Lakota Search and Rescue team from her Pine Ridge Reservation that responded, literally, overnight to national media broadcasts for all emergency workers to report to Ground Zero. The 25-member team included firemen, EMT’s and police officers from their Outreach programs.
I recall how honored I felt as an AICH employee when our agency invited the team to our community center for a “thank you” luncheon. At first, meeting Davidica, Oglala Lakota, and the rest of the team was a somber occasion. However, this was soon replaced by special moments of relief, camaraderie, gratefulness and heartfelt pride for everyone while we ate together in the agency’s luncheon area, The Circle.
