Wakanyeja kin lakol inajin heca nake nula waun welo.
Our vision is that our children will stand with everything Lakota, and will be prepared to take on anything.
For generations, Lakota people had a strong education system that effectively conveyed practical skills and knowledge, shared cultural values, and instilled a sense of self-worth and identity. The Sicangu Education Initiative is working to revitalize these principles of Lakota education within a modern context.
Our first project - Wakanyeja Tokeyahci Wounspe Tipi (Children First Learning Center) - is a language immersion Sicangu Lakota school opening doors in Sept of 2020.
