Join us for a heartfelt conversation on the latest edition of Native Bidaské! Levi Rickert, Publisher and Editor of Native News Online sits down with special guest Chairman Austin Lowe from The Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians to discuss The Lodge of Hope.
The Lodge of Hope is a groundbreaking project that converted a motel to provide shelter and support for the homeless in the tribe.

The project officially kicked off in August 2023, and so far, 39 households, including many children, have found refuge and assistance at The Lodge of Hope. Dive deeper into the details with Chairman Lowe, a former certified social worker, as he sheds light on the comprehensive approach taken by the Sioux Tribe. Learn about the unique case management services offered to residents, tackling the root causes of homelessness.
