    Building a community of resilient and powerful relatives.



    Wambli Ska Okolakiciye began in 2015 as a vision of Daron White Eagle, who worked tirelessly to bring traditional song and dance to youth and their families to revitalize culture and setting forth the path of a good road. After Daron's passing, his relatives continued with this work: opening Rapid City's first Native American community teen and family center in the summer of 2021, located in and serving the needs of the Northside urban Native American community.


    Our Native youth are integral in leading change in our community and are a critical part of community healing. Our Native youth crave self-determination - the ability to have control over their choices and manage their own life. The Teen Center offers new experiences through culturally responsive safe connections, allowing youth to strive for a different life and move into healing, health and wellness. Our Teen Center programs empower Native youth with the skills to revive their communities through connecting to their history, culture, and traditions. Life skills and workforce development give Native youth the foundations to be leaders and healers in their CommUNITY.
