Pine Ridge Reservation is considered a "Food Desert" and we are doing our part to fix this! We offer adults a year-long gardening class; teaching them financial planning, gardening, traditional food storage, and seasonal entrepreneurship for gardeners We also sell the produce grown in our half-acre garden at a community farmer's market.
From classes on Star Quilts, hand drums, to recipes and beading techniques, we help reconnect children and families with traditional Lakota cultural values, and arts and crafts.
Every year we put on our popular holiday events: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. We spread holiday cheer to those who would otherwise go without. On average, 400-600 community members attend our holiday parties!
Clothing & Food Distributions
Oyate Teca provides families with clothing for every season, from South Dakota's boiling summers to our frigid winters community members always need clothes. We also distribute food during holidays and food scarce times.
