Team One Spirit is a running team from Pine Ridge Reservation, that competes to raise awareness and raise funds for projects that support & inspire Native youth. Team One Spirit, also known as the Lakota Five is : Nupa White Plume, Alex Wilson, Amanda Carlow, Jeff Turning Heart & Kelsey Good Lance. The group competes to bring inspiration and hope to Lakota and other Native youth.


In December 2013, the Seminole Tribe from Florida began compiling videos of positive stories around Indian Country. Team One Spirit: The Lakota Five and their participation in the New York City Marathon caught their attention. The Tribe sent a film crew to the Reservation to film the story of the runners and One Spirit.

Very inspirational guys, keep it up and I hope we can all be inspired to do more for our community.

For more information on the Lakota Five you can follow them on their Facebook page or on their Twitter: SpiritPineRidge.
