TRIBES OF THE NORTHERN USA
# TRIP 1: LAKOTA PRAIRIE ADVENTURE - TIPI CAMPING AND HORSES
July, August and September (7 nights)
Experience Lakota old ways and the freedom of the prairie
[South Dakota & Nebraska]

Strike out into the Great Plains, and live as the Lakota Sioux did - in harmony with the plants, animals, stars and land.

For one week you can see through Lakota eyes in the beautiful, wide vistas of the Nebraska prairie, camping out in tipis, travelling by horse, connecting with the natural world, and experiencing time only through the rising and the sinking of the sun.

This hands-on trip is a complete immersion into the traditional Lakota ways, mixing together practical skills, a sense of spirituality and the environment that has been their home for centuries, providing a satisfying challenge for the adventurous traveller.
