As Lakota/Dakota people, Wačáŋtognaka (Generosity) is a part of our DNA. Wačáŋtognaka means contributing to the well-being of one’s people by sharing and giving freely. Wačáŋtognaka doesn’t speak of just possessions but also our gifts, time, experience, and abilities.
Do you know a Standing Rock citizen who gives of themselves for the betterment of our people? Nominate them as a SAGE Community Hero.
