We support initiatives developed by the Lakota people by working together with them to identify needed resources and means of funding.

Some initiatives are the Women’s Sewing co-ops and Fair Market Price for Arts and Crafts.

You can help the Lakota people renew their economy and their communities. This project promotes development that brings jobs and educational opportunities to both the youth and the adult members of the tribe.

Fair Markets for Arts and Crafts

Many of the artists on the reservation produce high quality, original, creative work. They are much in need of outlets for their products that will pay them a fair price for their work. Some of our sponsors and friends work with individual artists to locate and utilize likely markets.

Porcupine Quillwork

Porcupine quillwork is one of the oldest forms of artwork used by the Lakota nation. Long before glass beads were brought  from the old  world, porcupine quills were used to decorate and adorn clothing, weapons utensils and jewelry.

The time consuming work includes taking the quills off the porcupine, they have to be sorted, washed and then dyed. One or both tips are removed so the hollow quills can be moistened and flattened. Then the quills  are wrapped around pieces of rawhide which is the base of earrings or bracelets.

These original works of art directly support Lakota economic development, self sufficiency and sustainability on tribal lands.
