THUNDER VALLEY LANDSCAPE WORKSHOP AND GUIDELINES

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

“We must reestablish understanding and respect between our people and the planet by listening to the spirit of the place.” -Oyate Omniciye Oglala Lakota Plan, pg 189 

 

Thunder Valley CDC’s mission is to create an ecosystem of opportunity and a model of sustainable design for the Lakota people.  In support of this mission, Hoxie Collective, in collaboration with Hubbard Studio, hosted a workshop to discuss the stories and significance plants hold in the lives of Lakota people. The workshop was centered on developing planting design guidelines for those working in the community based in Lakota culture and traditions. One of the questions that stimulated dialogue during the workshop was: What could people experience as a result of plant communities in a contemporary Lakota community?
