Kiksuya First Nations Student Organization at NKU

 The Kiksuya First Nations Student Organization at NKU has a google+ page. You can follow their activities here or if you are an NKU student, at Orgsync. The Kiksuya Student Organization/First Nations serves the Pine Ridge and Cheyenne River Indian Reservations in South Dakota. Members work to raise awareness in our local communities about issues facing Native American people. They raise funds to support self-help projects on the reservations, providing building supplies, propane, books, bedding, and other items, as needed. The organization also trains selected representatives who will periodically travel to do volunteer work on the reservations, including housing repair and construction, organic gardening, and/or work with children and youth. KSO is committed to support the health and well-being of its members, stressing healthy choices in the way we eat, live, work, play and interact with each other and with the communities Kiksuya serves. Kiksuya respects core Lakota values including humility, compassion, generosity, and perseverance, and we strive to practice these values in our lives and work.

Kiksuya is looking for volunteers for their summer 2014 work. Contact Dr. Nicole Grant ( if you have questions.
