The Tapping Solution Foundation joined the Hawkwing organization in this endeavor, which is a group of people committed to making a difference with a very neglected and impoverished population. The Cheyenne River Lakota Reservation is the poorest county in the United States with limited healthcare, a life expectancy of only age 48, 85% unemployment and an average annual income per person of only $2,926, according to the Hawkwing Foundation.
Dr. Maria Ortner provided EFT Tapping resources to the Reservation as part of a medical mission to support the Takini School (Grades K to 12th) Dr. Ortner and the others from the medical mission worked with students, parents, teachers, and community members during a week-long stay. The level of trauma in this community was high, including different layers of trauma such as historic, generational, family, and personal.
