The Indigenous Wisdom Center on Pine Ridge 1 Favorite 

Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is home to the Oglala Lakota, designated as part of the Great Sioux Reservation. This land and its people have endured many tragedies at the hands of the United States government. Over 500 treaties negotiated in good faith with the U.S. government have been broken, changed or nullified to suit expansionist interests. Despite centuries of oppression, the Lakota people remain resilient, faithful, and strong. In the spirit of resilience Tiyospaye Winyan Maka and The Oglala Lakota Cultural and Economic Revitalization Initiative (OLCERI) have joined forces with their partners to create The Indigenous Wisdom Center: a Lakota language school and permaculture center serving Pine Ridge residents and indigenous scholars.
