  • About The Lakota People | One Spirit

    About The Lakota People of Pine Ridge Reservation Strong & Beautiful, Rich In Culture The Oglala Lakota Nation has a history dating back thousands of years. Oglala is a Lakota word meaning "to scatter one's own." The Oglala Lakota Nation is one of the seven bands of the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ (Seven Council Fires). A majority of the Oglala live on Pine Ridge. Most still honor their ancient traditions in the way they live their lives today. One Spirit supports the Lakota in their mission to become a food-sovereign, energy-independent nation, able to care for their young and old alike. Where is Pine Ridge Reservation? The Pine Ridge Reservation is in the southwestern corner of South Dakota. It is part of a larger territory established for the Lakota in 1868 by the United States government, later broken up into smaller tribal reservations and parceled out to non-Native homesteaders.​ Pine Ridge is the eighth-largest reservation in the US, home to about 40,000 Native Americans.
