EAGLE FLIGHT SCHOLARSHIPS
We are proud to offer scholarship incentives for Native American students to attend vocational schools, community colleges and universities. Many of our graduates are now successful in business, education, the ministry and more. We encourage our students to excel and become leaders of their tribes.
CLEAN WATER AND FOOD
For today’s Native American families, poor housing – often without water or electricity – is a way of life. Each year, we distribute safe water containers and hundreds of thousands of pounds of fresh food and produce to Native American families on reservations in the southwest.
EAGLE FLIGHT SUMMER CAMPS
For over 58 years, our FREE youth camps have provided Native American children with a week full of fun, food, and new friendships, as well as outstanding recreational, cultural and religious activities. These life-changing camps are held in Oklahoma and New Mexico.
PROJECT SCHOOL SHOES
When school begins in the fall, we provide more than 1000 pairs of school shoes for Native American students in Oklahoma, and in New Mexico on the Navajo reservation. New shoes are a luxury to most children we serve. How proud they are wearing their new shoes to school!
Each year, we provide full Thanksgiving dinners for elderly Cherokees here in Oklahoma, and for elderly Navajos in New Mexico. Many of these Native Americans live alone in brutal poverty, and speak only their native tongue like their ancestors.
Our ministry has been truly blessed to make Christmas dreams come true for thousands of needy Native American children with gifts of new coats, shoes or colorfully wrapped presents! These children would not have a real Christmas without our help. What a joyous experience for these youngsters!
One of our newest programs is presented in an informal setting, and features up-beat motivational presentations which challenge Native American teenage girls to become the kind of young women God would have them be, by encouraging them to trust the plans God has for their lives (Jeremiah 29:11).
At high elevations, winter winds on the reservation are extremely harsh. Poorly constructed houses and hogans where the Navajos live do not have adequate heat, so many families are forced to use “open fires” to heat their homes. We provide firewood to help maintain their heat source in winter.
