This is an update for the Oyate Omniciye | Oglala Lakota Planning Project.
The Consortium had a few recent additions; Tusweca Tiospaye which is a non-profit working to teach the Lakota Language to youth, Native American Natural Foods (NANF) which is focused on creating a family of nationally branded food products that are delicious and that promote a Native American way of wellness that feeds mind, body, and spirit and Lakota Funds which is community development financial institution (CDFI) leading an economic resurgence of the Oglala Lakota Oyate on the Pine Ridge Reservation through culturally appropriate strategies reigniting the traditional Lakota spirit of productivity, commerce, and trade. We are glad to have them aboard and hope to have more soon!
The Steering Committee and Consortium both met with the Planning Team for the very first time in August. Both meetings were a huge success! The Steering Committee aims to keep the Oglala Lakota Planning Project aligned with the "Voice of the Lakota Nation." We are currently looking for two High School students to be part of the Steering Committee, so if you know of anyone email us (skanskan@OglalaLakotaPlan.org) or call us (455-2700).
