Join Trees, Water & People on a journey to the home of the Oglala Lakota for the 2011 Lakota Adventure. From September 11th-17th we will be taking guests to the Pine Ridge Reservation to experience the strength, pride, humor and enduring culture of the Oglala Lakota. Despite hardship, the Lakota have nourished and preserved their spirituality, culture and ties with their land.
Learn about TWP’s Tribal Lands Renewable Energy Program, help build solar air heaters, and plant trees for wind breaks and shade at a local families home. In addition, we will travel to Wounded Knee and other cultural and historical sites to learn about the Lakota culture, past and present.
