Sicangu CDC empowers people, strengthens families, and builds community — Lakota style — to build an equitable, regenerative world where the Sicangu Lakota and all our relatives can thrive.
Our work is focused on three main pillars of community development.
Food sovereignty: creating greater access to local, healthy foods and re-opening traditional indigenous foodways;
Health: culturally-relevant, community-based programs that offer wraparound wellness and health services to Native youth and their families;
Education: indigenizing educational delivery through the operation of the reservation’s only Lakota language immersion school.
