KEYA WAKPALA WOÍÇAGEYAPI
(Turtle Creek Regenerative Development)
“KEYA WAKPALA WOÍÇAGEYAPI IS A SAFE PLACE FOR ALL LAKOTA PEOPLE AND THEIR NEIGHBORS WHO SEEK A UNIQUE COMMUNITY ENCOURAGING RESILIENCE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND HELPFULNESS WHILE RENEWING A CULTURALLY MEANINGFUL WAY OF LIFE”
- Project Vision Statement, given by the Oyate
Keya Wakpala is a multi-phased community-scale green development. Over the past several years, REDCO has laid the figurative foundation for the project by conducting community engagement activities, site planning, and feasibility studies.
In late 2020, REDCO was awarded two grants that will support the final design and initial construction of Phase 1, which will include 10 single-family homes and a Sicangu Innovation Center, which will serve as a community hub and place for business incubation.
A full site for the page is in development, but below you can find a presentation that was recently shared with the Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council.
