The history of the United States of America is glorious yet complex. We invite you to explore this history by joining us on a study abroad project that will take us to The Lakota Nation. We will live with and learn from the Lakota people of Rosebud reservation in South Dakota. This immersion experience will include lectures from Lakota elders and scholars that will expand our historical perspective.

A perspective which includes the social, spiritual, ethical and metaphysical structures of this society. We will study and participate in traditional arts and games. We will have the privilege to experience the Sweat Lodge ceremony. Included also will be an excursion trip to the Black Hills, sacred to the Lakota people, Rine Ridge, Wounded Knee and the Badlands. From this experience we shall take away greater appreciation of the humanities and the humanity of The Lakota
