Featherman the 2012 recipient of the Honorary Peltier Scholarship

The LPDOC congratulates the 2012 recipient of the Honorary Leonard Peltier Scholarship, Terry Featherman of Kyle, SD.

The annual award is given to an Oglala Lakota Tribal Member who plans to attend the Oglala Lakota College.  It is geared toward meeting the financial needs of the non-traditional student. The applicants must have a General Equivalency Diploma (GED) awarded during the current school year and also currently reside in the local geographic area.

This Scholarship was created to honor Leonard Peltier's vision of empowering the Oglala People through education so that they may contribute to the future direction of their Nation and the preservation of their traditional Lakota language, culture and spirituality.
