2011 Lakota Tipi Camp
A Great Experience For All
We offer you the opportunity to spend your vacation in the beautiful land of the Lakota people and take a life-long experience home with you. This trip is a journey into the heart of the Lakota people's land on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. We will explore with you the beauty of the prairie and the badlands. Living in traditional Tipis, enjoying the evening-meals around the camp fire and experiencing the beauty of our local Pow-Wow's.
You will be guided and taken care of by Lakota tribal-members who will take you to historical places like Wounded Knee, Fort Robinson; the place where Crazy Horse was killed, the Badlands, Lakota businesses on the reservation and much more. There will be plenty of opportunities to meet Lakota people who will tell you about their culture, history and land. We will take the time to meet people and learn from each other. This tour will give you a deep insight into the lives of the Lakota people, their land, living conditions and into their culture and history.
The evening dinners will be spent by the open fire listening to songs and stories of the Lakota or the howling of the coyotes. We invite Lakota guests to join our dinner and tell you about culture, politics, economy and history of the Lakota people. Part of this unique experience will be an evening with a drum-group and traditional hand-games. You will learn how to bead and cook traditional Lakota foods in workshops.
