FT. PIERRE, S.D. — The Great Sioux Nation chairmen and presidents will be collaborating on an inaugural Great Sioux Nation address at the Wakpa Sica building in Ft. Pierre, South Dakota on January 16, 2020. The purpose of the event is to provide the people of the Sioux Nation a tribal leadership perspective on the challenges the Great Sioux Nation faces in the coming year.
Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Chairman Harold Frazier will be among the tribal leaders in attendance.
The Sioux Tribal leaders will discuss the state of affairs in individual tribes while informing the direction of their respective tribe for the new year. Many tribal leaders will converge on Wakpa Sica for the event which is located along the Missouri across from the South Dakota state capitol in Sioux tribal treaty territory.
