Community Partner: 

In collaboration with the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux tribe in Sisseton, South Dakota, this team will prepare a well-researched and credible community center programming plan. Our efforts are two-fold: first, to identify opportunities for economic self-sustainability within the community center as a means to strengthen tribal sovereignty. Second, this team will examine ways to create spaces that both strengthen tribal culture and remain accessible to the geographic community beyond tribal ties.
