5th Annual Multi-State Horse Ride Moves Through Front Range

Posted by lori@thetipiraisers.org

The Tipi Raisers works on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation of South Dakota, providing humanitarian aid while striving to create trust and understanding between Native Lakota people and non-Natives from across the country. The Ride brings us together; to work, play, struggle, talk and of course, ride! The LakotaRide also serves as an important fundraiser to support our year-round, humanitarian projects on the reservation, our Gen7 Youth Leadership program as well as Native-Culture presentations- sharing indigenous wisdom- off the reservation.

As the Ride moves through the Front Range, neighboring communities are invited to evening gatherings called "wicotis" (wee-cho-tee), to welcome the riders, listen to the sacred drum, hear from Lakota elders, see traditional dancing and share a meal. Join the Ride, Opening Ceremony or a Wicoti!
