The group that worked with the Yankton Sioux Indian Reservation split their time between Marty and Wagner learning about the jurisdiction issues that the Yankton Sioux Tribe faces as well as the poverty issues that are prevalent on the reservation. Participants dug potatoes from a community garden and performed maintenance at the local Boys and Girls Club gymnasium. Kendra Mulder of Canton, S.D., the group’s student site-leader, thought that the tribe was “very inviting” and told the students so much about their culture and everything they were doing within the communities of Wagner and Marty to create good relationships with non-tribe members

The group that traveled to Fort Thompson worked with the Dacotah Tipis Habitat for Humanity on the Crow Creek Indian Reservation. Most of their time was spent on construction of the new Habitat for Humanity volunteer center, which, when finished, will allow Dacotah Tipis to increase their volunteer capacity and expand the number of services they provide for the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe population.
