The Cheyenne River Grassroots Collective is a Lakota-led initiative that aspires to train, educate, empower and protect the next generations while fighting for their right to a safe and clean world. We strive to spread knowledge and awareness of the many various political, environmental and socio-economical battles we face in our communities.
Our focus is centered on fighting and advocating for social and environmental justice through nonviolent direct action training, education in courtroom processes, experience in rallies and marches, creative release in art, and frontline coaching. We wish to provide the safe spaces needed to radicalize, strategize, organize and mobilize our Lakota Oyate.
This collective is made up mainly of Lakota enrolled members of the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation. We come from communities that are working toward a brighter future for our future descendant through self-sustainability and mentorship.
Our core beliefs and value systems are rooted in the Lakota culture and spirituality. We empower one another to give back as much as we can to the community and people who gave so much to us
