A Vacation / Volunteer Combo In South Dakota

So far, all Dacotah Tipis Habitat for Humanity volunteers have found their experience rewarding and memorable – but there’s more to do. As a matter of fact there’s so much to do we recommend that you extend your stay.
Here is what you’ll find in the Crow Creek area:

Akta Lakota Museum
& Cultural Center

PO Box 89
Chamberlain, SD 57325
1-800-798-3452
aktalakota@stjo.org

Opened in 1991, St. Joseph’s museum boasts a proud collection of traditional items, art, research material and more. As an outreach program of St. Joseph’s Akta Lakota Museum & Cultural Center, the museum operates entirely on donations. Admission is free; tours are offered, and visitors are welcome year-round!

Visitors benefit from a mini-theater, English-Lakota descriptions, a research/archive library and the stunning Collector’s Gallery, where local artists display and sell their work.

The Crow Creek Reservation offers exceptional upland game bird and waterfowl hunting, as well as deer, antelope and varmint hunting. Wild populations of ring-necked pheasants, sharp-tailed grouse and prairie chickens are found throughout the tribal lands. As a prominent feature of the Central Waterfowl Flyway, huge numbers of migrating ducks and geese pass through the area, and premier waterfowl hunting is the result. Over 130,000 acres of tribal land can be hunted with a valid tribal hunting license.

The season on the reservation opens two weeks earlier than the South Dakota regular season. If you want to use a guide, they are available at Crow Creek. I would recommend using one. The reservation also had a November and December Deer Hunt last year by which several trophy mule deer and whitetails were taken.
