Lakota Ride 2019

Riders from the Lakota Ride travel on horseback from Sedalia, Colorado to Pine Ridge, South Dakota. The riders will arrive at John Meade Park in Cherry Hills Village on Sunday, July 14th (the estimated arrival time is 4 p.m., but since participants include horses and young people, some flexibility is understandable). Traditional Lakota drummers will welcome the riders as they arrive. All community members are welcome to attend - or sign up to be part of the ride for a day! 

The purpose of the Lakota Ride is to create positive, healthy and long-term relationships between the Lakota People and those seeking to better understand the Lakota culture, history, and way of life, and to raise critically needed funds for projects underway on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation.  You can learn more and support the ride by going to
