Review for The Tipi Raisers, Oglala, SD, USA
The staff and volunteers at Cherokee Ranch & Castle have worked with the Tipi Raisers the past two years creating and producing a summit for teens. The purpose of the summit is to bring a wide diversity of young people together to discover how much they have in common, hone leadership skills and start looking at solutions to problems we all face in the future. Tipi Raisers is a foundational and integral part of the program. They have helped with creating the curriculum, bringing participants, providing support and facilitating the activities. Their representatives are always positive and visionary, yet they are more than willing to do the work to make things happen. Their deep commitment to the youth of today, the Lakota people and the future ahead is apparent in everything they do. They have persevered through major obstacles and gradually earned the trust and respect of the Lakota people on the reservation. This is a group that is truly changing lives!
