The Cheyenne River Reservation is rich with Native American heritage. We welcome you to experience our Lakota culture through the various options listed below.
HVJ Cultural Center & Gift Shop
The HVJ Cultural Center and Gift Shop, located on Highway 212 in Eagle Butte, is a unique gift shop with authentic Native American arts and crafts. The center includes a hall of murals featuring paintings by local artists. It is also the home to many cultural events, such as art shows and powwows, and is a great place to meet people of the Cheyenne River Lakota Nation.
The Keya Foundation partners with underserved communities through education, social health, and cultural renewal to invest in themselves, their families, and their communities for a future of endurance, longevity, and protection. The Keya Foundation administers the Lakota Artistry Cooperative that generates income for participating Lakota artists.
Powwows on Cheyenne River
Powwows are beautiful displays of Native American culture. They serve as community events for people to come together and join in dancing, signing, and renewing Native American culture. The Cheyenne River Reservation is home to many powwows each year.
