Established in 1992 and located on the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Reservation, Lakota Youth Development (aka Native American Advocacy Program) is a statewide, non-profit, grassroots organization serving persons residing on and off the lands of the tribal nations in South Dakota. Our goal is to re-establish and support a Hocoka (Sacred Circle) for the Oyate (people) to facilitate positive direction in their lives through Lakota Language, culture values and spirituality with our horse nation relatives. In addition to youth programs, Lakota Youth Development offers cultural heritage tourism in the form of lodging (tipis, tent sites and a bunkhouse) and cultural activities (historical tour, traditional Lakota games, dance performances, make and take cultural arts projects, native sports and more).
