Museum Interpretive Center

Our Mission

At the heart of the Standing Rock Nation a groundbreaking initiative unfolds—The Museum Interpretive Center. Spearheaded by SAGE Development, our mission is to empower the Lakota/Dakota people to tell our stories, on our land, in our own words. This center is not just a museum; it’s a vibrant cultural beacon dedicated to exploring, preserving, and showcasing the rich history and culture of the Standing Rock people.

Why It Matters

For generations, the story of the Standing Rock and its people has been narrated from perspectives external to our community. The Museum Interpretive Center changes this narrative, offering an authentic voice to our history, struggles, and achievements. It’s about reclaiming our narrative and ensuring the Standing Rock story survives and thrives for future generations.

What to Expect
