Tusweca Tiospaye is 100% Lakota operated and is located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in Southwestern South Dakota, home of the Oglala Sioux Tribe
Tusweca Tiospaye is a Native American run 501 (c)(3) charity that was created in 2007 to revitalize the Lakota language and culture among the youth of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation
The mission of Tusweca Tiospaye is to develop a strong, healthy, and prosperous environment in which Lakota children and their families can learn and incorporate the Lakota language into their daily lives.
In 2008 Tusweca Tiospaye created the Lakota Dakota Nakota Language Summit to unite all Lakota Dakota Nakota (Sioux) reservations, reserves and communities in the United States and Canada in efforts to revitalize our language and culture.
