Building A Ceremony House

In 2005, Volunteer Network International and the Amazonia Foundation non-profit organizations began the construction of a large Ceremony House on the Rosebud Lakota Reservation. Under the guidance of Lakota elder and Medicine Bundle Keeper, Roy Stone Sr. the house will serve the traditional community and all their relations.

In 1890 all Indian religious ceremonies were outlawed in the United States until 1978. This is the first large ceremony house on Rosebud since their religion was outlawed 113 years ago.

JUNE 2006, The Ceremony House was completed.
