laree is a parent and language arts educator in their home place of pine ridge. they seek a teaching and learning practice that is anti-colonial and anti-capitalist; and view writing as a method of materializing the world we imagine and need.
The Racing Magpie Winter Camp program is reimagining the Lakota winter camp model of problem solving and community building in today’s world by examining the deeper reasons why Lakota people do things the way they do and why they interact with the universe around them. As plants and trees focus their energy on building strength and growing from the roots during the winter, our community will join to strengthen and grow together each year through sharing and learning. Watch for more events each month through the winter.
Support for the Winter Camp program is generously provided through a grant from the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, The Bush Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
