Today, Recovery Communities of South Dakota rests on the ancestral lands of the Oceti Sakowin, the Seven Council Fires. The tribal alliance, comprised of individual bands, of the Seven Council Fires is based on kinship, location and dialects: Santee-Dakota, Yankton-Nakota and Teton-Lakota. We acknowledge the people who resided here for generations and recognize that the spirit of the Oceti Sakowin is innate to and imbued within this land. As a recovery community, we will continue to build upon and strive to honor our relations with the people of the First Nations; Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, Oglala Sioux Tribe, Rosebud Sioux Tribe, Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Yankton Sioux Tribe.
