Emergency Flood Relief and Updates

June 9, 2011


Anthony Walker (Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska) is on the receiving end of a sandbag pass from Kyle Leaf (Cheyenne River Tribe). Both are students in a Criminal Justice class from United Tribes Technical College that volunteered Thursday afternoon at a home north of Mandan along the river.

Thanks to your assistance to the American Indian College Fund’s Flood Emergency Fund, our tribal college communities impacted by rising waters along the Missouri River and its tributaries can cope better with the ongoing situation.
The Army Corps of Engineers anticipates that in many areas flooding could last as long as six weeks. We thank you for your past support of scholarships for American Indian students and your extraordinary support of our communities to help purchase food, clean drinking water, diapers, formula, blankets, and emergency items during this time.
As the flooding unfolds, please look to our blog, Facebook, and Twitter pages, where we will keep you apprised of the latest developments in our communities.
