Arts & Culture Initiative

Engaging and supporting local artists is a vital part of everything we do, from community design to program planning. Art and artists play a critical role in sustaining healthy communities through the promotion of cultural pride and the creation of new economy.


Artist Advisory Council - this group of Lakota artists and culture bearers guide the design team in the community planning process, ensuring the creation of spaces that are unique to Lakota culture and representative of Lakota Values.

Public Arts- Deliberate inclusion of art throughout our Regenerative Community will create dynamic and accessible artthat supports a sense of community pride & beauty.

Community Center - this versatile space has been designed to include spaces for art workshops, live performances, celebrations, and community gatherings.

Artist Live/Work Spaces - with a large majority of artists on Pine Ridge working out of their homes, we want to create housing options that support local artists’ lifestyle.
