Why does Honey Lodge Matter?

“it empowers youth to become future entrepreneurs and be self-sustaining.”

“it is local honey harvested by our own Lakota youth.”

“it helps to fund youth programs that focus on empowerment and supporting one another."

“the bees are our relatives and they need our help."

“our bees are connected to everything in nature."

“honey can help us and our communities be healthier."

“An important aspect of the Lakota Youth Development's mission is to teach and equip Lakota young people to survive and thrive in today's world by strengthening their connection to their own culture. The Honey Lodge enterprise (keeping bees, and collecting and selling honey) supports that overall mission by teaching independence, initiative, and good work ethic to accomplish goals."
