TATANKA LUTA was established to help the children of the Cheyenne Indian Reservation in South Dakota who are suffering from extreme poverty, abuse, alcoholism, and neglect.
Tatanka Luta is a non-profit organization whose mission is to rebuild and heal the Lakota Nation of Peoples by preparing the children through knowledge and understanding of their beautiful way of life passed down from the ancestors so they will become good mothers, fathers, life givers, warriors, and leaders to preserve their way of life for the future generations.
Tatanka Luta recognizes the serious need for healthy, stable, sufficient home living Environments for the youth that are currently being placed in foster care in the State of South Dakota. These numbers are currently reaching epic proportions amongst the Dakota, Lakota and Nakota Youth.
Tatanka Luta is committed to providing a safe, spiritually centered home environment, creating health, wellbeing and strong spiritual principles. The scope of the program is to create an environment that dispels the current belief that our children are disposable. We offer water, shelter, and food for children ages 10 to 18.
