Help Lakota families recover, protect, and utilize their allotted lands.

Village Earth's Lakota Lands Recovery Project works with families on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota to recover their allotted lands from the Federal leasing program to protect and utilize it on their own. Currently, over 60% of their lands are being leased out by the Federal Government. Visit http://www.villageearth.org/pages/Projects/Pine_Ridge/index.php for more information.
