Lakota Lands & Indian Arts Traveling Workshop Announced

Arts South Dakota, a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization whose purpose is to “advance the arts in South Dakota through service, education and advocacy,” announced today that it is partnering with CAIRNS to offer a “workshop on wheels” June 8-10, 2020. “The idea of being ‘en route’ grows from the premise that peoples and places are interwoven in a complex relationship. The geographic focus of this workshop is a small portion of the traditional homelands of the Lakota people. We will travel to prominent places within the boundaries of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty, including Mato Paha (Bear Butte), Cankpe Opi (Wounded Knee), Wasun  Niya (Wind Cave), Pe Sla (Reynolds Prairie), and more, as well as artworks that depict Lakotas and more generally, American Indians.” For more information, contact Community Development Director Andrew Reinartz at or 605-252-5979.
