Thunder Valley Community Development

We, Thunder Valley Community Development Corporation, envision a liberated Lakota Nation through our language, lifeways, and spirituality. Our vision is inevitably tied to the language, lifeways, and the environment in which we raise our children. To be a liberated society means we are leaving behind those vestiges of colonization and allowing ourselves to be truly free. Our Lakota Language and Lifeways Initiative is a multigenerational effort designed to reclaim, revitalize and restore our Language and Lifeways through Indigenous Montessori Education, Adult Education, Curriculum Development, and ultimately our own authentic Lakota school design.
