ABOUT THIS INITIATIVE

A PROMISE TO THE PINE RIDGE RESERVATION

The Pine Ridge Indian Reservation is one of 13 designated Promise Zones in the country, and one of only two tribal communities that have received a Promise Zone designation. Through this designation, our community will have the opportunity to work directly with federal, state, and local agencies to give local leaders proven tools to improve the quality of life for the Oglala Lakota Oyate.
