Educating 600 Lakȟóta kids.
Poised to take on the world.

Our Vision

Red Cloud champions intellectual and spiritual growth, and Lakȟóta culture—language, ceremony, and visual arts—to create transformational opportunities for our Oglala Lakȟóta community.

Truth And Healing

A Truth and Healing process is a commitment to acknowledging and examining the trauma that is part of our history as an Indian boarding school. Boarding school survivors, their families, and loved ones are provided resources and spaces to share their stories and experiences. We will, in turn, do everything in our power to provide information and support healing, within the Red Cloud community, across the reservation, and beyond.
