On the heels of the Free Lakota Bank celebrating its fourth anniversary, it is time to share a few updates and points of interest…
It is with a sad heart that we observe the Wanagi Wicagluha (period of mourning) for our friend and much admired Oglala Lakota, Wanbli Ohitika (Brave Eagle), Russell Means. He was a great warrior and did much to increase awareness of the struggles faced by modern indigenous peoples especially the Lakota. He walks with Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse and all of our great ancestors.
Lakota Dollar Store
The Free Lakota Bank is partnering with the Pine Ridge community to build a new store on the reservation. We look forward to helping add jobs and vital resources on the reservation that might otherwise be lost to surrounding communities. Construction is expected to begin around the first of the year.
General Development Fund Interest Rates Lowering
As we celebrate reaching another milestone, we must soon end the promotional introductory interest rates for contracts available from our General Development Fund. These rates have been 1yr @ 3.25%, 2yrs @ 5.25% and 3yrs @ 7.25%. The new rates, as of January 1, 2013, will be 3.25%, 4.25% and 5.25% respectively. Take advantage of the current highly competitive introductory rates now by locking in your 1, 2 or 3 year contract. To do this, log into your account and look for the link above your account balance that says “Invest”. Clicking on that link will take you through the simple process of beginning to make your property work for you.
Lakota Currency Now More Affordable
The rate of exchange for Lakota currency will soon be lowering which means that it will take less of your money to acquire ours. This has been made possible due to a successful investment which ensures that Lakota currency will be available to our future generations and all of our friends for many years to come.
A special thanks is deserved by those who have shared the news of Free Lakota Bank with their friends and family through videos, articles, blogs, postings on message boards, social media, etc. As you may not be aware, the Free Lakota Bank does not invest in a sizable marketing budget. These resources are targeted to ensuring we can offer better service to our account holders, better rates of return and maintain profitability. This means that most of our success is due to you! So, thanks for all you have done and continue to do to let the world know that they have an honest alternative.
