Sicangu CDC

We are a nonprofit organization serving the Sicangu (see-CHAHN-ghoo) Lakota Oyate (oh-YAH-tay). The name “Sicangu” means “burnt-thigh” in our native Lakota language, and we live on the land that is now known as the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. Generally speaking, “Lakota” and “Sioux” both refer to the larger Nation of which we are a part; however “Sioux” is a name given by outsiders. We proudly claim Sicangu Lakota as our name and our identity.

Changing Broken Systems

Genocide was committed against the Indigenous people living on Turtle Island (North America). At times in history, it was explicit, but more often than not, it was carried out through policies and systems intentionally designed to reduce the Native population. Many of those systems still persist today and are a detriment to Native livelihood, well-being, and ultimate existence. At Sicangu CDC, we work to transform these systems so that they are community-driven and grounded in our Lakota values.

Sicangu CDC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located on the Rosebud Reservation in Mission, South Dakota.
