Serve and learn on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in Pine Ridge, South Dakota with CYL and The Tipi Raisers. Spend 4 days on the Reservation participating in cultural immersion, service projects and adventure! The service project, which is dependent on need, can be any of the following: tearing down/building a house for a Lakota family, building a community garden, building an Inipi (Lakota sweat lodge), etc. You will also have a real-life look at life on the Reservation and be immersed in a cultural experience learning from Lakota elders. You will have the opportunity to participate in an Inipi, spiritual Lakota sweat lodge.
Our adventures will include horseback riding in the open prairie, hiking in South Dakota’s Badlands, touring the Wounded Knee massacre site and watching beautiful sunsets! If you are interested in this trip, please contact Lauren. Parent/student info session and cultural event coming this spring!
Attend Base Camp: Awareness 2 Action to learn more about Pine Ridge prior to the trip! You can participate in a workshop to learn about Native American rights and current life on the Reservation.
