At REDCO, our community development efforts center on achieving sustainable growth for the Sicangu Lakota Oyate on and surrounding the Rosebud Sioux Tribe.
The 7Gen Plan is a 175-year living document to achieve maximum prosperity for the Sicangu Lakota Oyate. This living document contains a direction for key areas of holistic economic growth on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation such as agriculture, climate change, technology, healthcare, etc.
The Three Sisters Strategy
The Three Sisters Strategy is an innovative nation building partnership developed to tackle the enormous challenges and opportunities facing the Sicangu Lakota Oyate. The three partners are distinct organizations with interconnected activities operating under one mission:
As Lakota, we believe we are all related, and it is our duty to create a better world for future generations.
Each sister will work to accomplish this mission differently:
· At REDCO, we do this by developing amazing leaders who run great organizations. REDCO is focused on tribal enterprise and policy development.
· At Sicangu CDC, we do this by empowering people, strengthening families, and building community – Lakota style. Sicangu CDC is focused on revolutionizing the food, housing, education, and healthcare systems of the Sicangu.
· At Tatanka Fund, we do this through supporting personal finance, business entrepreneurship, and homeownership.
To achieve maximum impact, the Three Sisters – the Rosebud Economic Development Corporation, the Sicangu Community Development Corporation, and Tatanka Funds Community Development Financial Institution – are developing and implementing a 7 Generation Plan that will support change-making and nation- building activities for the next 175 years.
