Headed to #SXSWeco w/ @tvalleycdc

The community introduced us to a Lakota phrase — Mitakuye Oyasin  — that means we are all connected (air, water, earth, animals, people). This is symbiotic with the concept of regeneration, which is the ability of an organism or system to restore an original function after being damaged or lost. Regeneration builds upon our connections. The historic trauma and incongruous policies suffered by the Lakota people have created many challenges for their economy, housing, environment, health, and culture. So, the programs of Thunder Valley CDC and the master planned facilities of the Regenerative Community seek to find new solutions to these challenges. These solutions are rooted in traditional values and integrated systems in order to have a ripple effect on the larger Lakota community, restoring order, function, and wellness through modeling empowerment.
