Native American Life Week - Road Scholar

A Road Scholar educational adventure planned and run by Outlaw Ranch.

Oct 6-11, 2018

Travel to the spectacular badlands of South Dakota to learn directly from the Lakota people about their proud history that includes the venerable Red Cloud and Crazy Horse. From the Battle of the Little Bighorn to Wounded Knee, the Lakota have carved their place in American history. This resilient Sioux tribe has retained many of their ancient and hallowed traditions, but has also adapted to modern times. Experience an authentic pow-wow, several Native American dances and life on a reservation as you learn directly from local Native Americans about how they’re preserving and building on their rich cultural history.


At the Black Hills Pow-wow, learn directly from the Lakota people and enjoy authentic dancing and drumming.

Venture to the Crazy Horse Memorial and Museum to celebrate Native American Day and interact with Native American artists.

Go behind the scenes at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to learn from knowledgeable and engaging Native American speakers about what life is like on a reservation.

Stay at Outlaw Ranch in the Vision Quest Lodge or the Barn Retreat Center, surrounded by ponderosa pine forests and the peaks of the Black Hills.
