Wolakota was created by the economic development arm of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, the Rosebud Economic Development Corporation (REDCO).
At REDCO, we are bringing Tatanka back to the people as a way to realize our vision of a healthy, helpful, and safe Oyate (nation). We have converted over 20,000 acres of tribal land from cattle to bison. .
The Wolakota Regenerative Buffalo Range and Wildlife Sanctuary will:
1) Provide cultural and educational opportunities
2) Initiate ecological regeneration
3) Combat climate change
4) Strengthen food sovereignty
5) Create economic opportunity
The bond between the Lakota and Tatanka is sacred. For millennia, Tatanka cared for Lakota people by providing food, shelter, clothing, tools, and ceremonial items. European and American settlers hunted buffalo to near extinction, disrupting the Lakota way of life and the local ecosystems. The Wolakota Buffalo Range is a sustainable solution that will return Tatanka to our homelands will not only revitalize the prairie, but also the people who call it home.
