The Center

The Indigenous Wisdom Center is currently under construction at our eco-ranch in Slim Butte. It will house a community space to be used for classrooms and training in holistic, sustainable design practices for both natural building and organic gardening and food production.

The Center is the first phase of our project to create a wisdom sharing hub where self-motivated local residents on Pine Ridge can come and learn from Lakota initiated projects to take skills, knowledge, and inspiration back to their homes to initiate their own projects on their land.
