#288 Looks Within
“Looks Within” is about introspection and awakening the spirit. “Looks Within” was presented to Red Lodge Transition Services on August 4th, 2012 at the 28th Annual Big Yard Pow Wow by the Lakota Club, behind the Iron Doors of the Oregon State Penitentiary (O.S.P.). The Lakota Club is one of the oldest Activities clubs functioning today behind the massive grey walls that surround this historic correctional facility; a fully functioning city that houses almost 3,000 men.
The Lakota Club holds fundraisers at least twice a year, on behalf of individuals and organizations. In an effort to reduce/prevent incarceration among youth, a speaking panel made up of club members with long prison sentences share their stories, realities, addictions, and wisdom. “This is not about scaring kids straight, it’s about helping our young people make better choices, and encouraging them to grow in their spiritual and cultural practices. It’s about holding ourselves accountable, and giving something meaningful back to our communities”.
