Kids Time: Kids Time takes place at the center every Tuesday-Friday from 4-6pm. All children potty-trained and older are welcome to come and participate in structured activities (crafts, games, etc) on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, a meal on Thursdays, and indoor and outdoor free play on Fridays. We hope to create a safe and welcoming environment where kids are known and loved and can find support and healthy role models as they grow.
Pre-teen Time: In February 2019 we added Pre-teen time for children nine and up. The Pre-teens meet once a week for lunch and age appropriate activities including spiritual formation with both Traditional Lakota Spirituality and Christianity, life/coping skills, learning opportunities, youth exchange programs, and more. In the coming years we hope to see a Teen/Young Adult program developing. Takoje Wachi Oyate (Grandchildren’s Dance Society): The Grandchildren's Dance Society provides opportunities for the children who attend Kids Time and Pre-teen time to learn about Traditional Lakota Dancing and get to practice the different dances and aspects of a Traditional Powwow. Approximately once a month the dancers visit the Oglala Sioux Lakota Nursing Home and put on a powwow for the elders.
