History and Culture

Creation of REDCO

In 1999, the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Government reclaimed their right to economic self-determination by establishing REDCO as a wholly-owned arm of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. 

REDCO’s purpose is to generate revenue and create economic opportunity for the Sicangu Lakota Oyate and surrounding communities.

Located in what is now known as south central South Dakota, the Rosebud Indian Reservation is home to approximately 27,000 citizens of the Sicangu Lakota Oyate (“Burnt Thigh Nation”), also known as the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. The Sicangu Oyate is part of the of the Očéti Šakówiŋ (Seven Council Fires) which is also known as the Great Sioux Nation) and have a proud history reaching back since time immemorial. 

Lakota tribes have inhabited the Black Hills and surrounding plains for more than 2,000 years. The Lakota are best known as kind relatives, expert buffalo hunters, and fierce defenders of freedom and land. The adoption of the horse and modern technology into Lakota culture, guided by strong values of bravery, fortitude, generosity, respect, compassion, and wisdom allowed the Lakota to become the dominant economic force on the Great Plains.

The Sicangu worked with other Lakota bands to protect their way of life and resist the westward expansion of the United States government. They won a significant victory when they forced the signing of two peace treaties that established the boundaries the Great Sioux Nation, which encompasses South Dakota, northern parts of Nebraska and eastern Montana. Although the treaties established peace and were meant to provide a sustainable land base for the Sicangu Oyate, they were broken within a matter of years, following the discovery of gold in the Black Hills. 

One of the United States’ war tactics was the slaughter of vast buffalo herds in the Great Plains, which the Sicangu relied upon for food, shelter, clothing, spiritual items, and primary trade currency. The genocide against buffalo resulted in a decimation of the Lakota economy and led to the subjugation of Lakotas to reservations. The Rosebud Reservation was established in 1889. Further theft of prime farming and ranching lands, forced attendance at boarding schools designed to “kill the Indian to save the man,” and over regulation by the federal government has stifled economic development for generations, resulting in persistent poverty and other socioeconomic challenges. 

The Sicangu have remained resilient, maintaining their culture, language, and strong identity as stewards of natural resources and keepers of conscience. The Sicangu pursuit to maintain their sovereignty and have final say over of their lands, energy, education, health, and economy not only continues, but is giving rise to a new chapter in history characterized by a return to Lakota values and worldview. 

We are doing that through our 7Gen Approach, which requires us to consider the next Seven Generations when creating plans and making decisions. Our place-based, holistic ecosystem is working to create lasting systemic change
