Sioux Falls Seminary, in partnership with Indigenous Pathways and Wiconi, is offering an experiential course in cross cultural immersion among the Sicangu Lakota.  July 7-13, 2018 will be our twelfth year offering this course on the Rosebud Reservation. The Rosebud Reservation makes up Todd County in South Dakota and is one of the three poorest counties in the whole United States.  The mix of poverty and a rich cultural tradition is quite remarkable and worthy of note.

Our experience is conducted in a good way in friendship and partnership with the Sicangu Lakota people. It is a deeply enriching learning experience for those who participate. The group is limited to the first twenty-five people who register. Join us as learners as you immerse yourself in the local culture and in dialogue with a team of instructors and local Sicangu Lakota leaders.  You do not need to be a student to participate in this experience.  The group is commonly about half graduate students and half others who want to learn more about the Lakota and about Native/Indigenous culture and context.

$825 per person.  Inquire for details.  Travel to South Dakota not included.
