Akta Lakota Museum & Cultural Center

The Akta Lakota Museum & Cultural Center at St. Joseph’s Indian School aims to honour and preserve the rich culture of the Lakota people. The museum has an intriguing collection of artefacts and displays that can be used to educate people about the unique history of the Lakota people and their fascinating culture today. There are four key parts of the museum tour including Camp Circle which focuses on the historical relationships between the tribes and Two Worlds Meet which looks at the arrival of the Euro-American explorers and traders in the early 1800s. Broken Promises details the U.S. government’s involvement in the loss of traditional lands and treaties, while Continuity and Change focuses on how Native Americans have adapted to their new way of life and successfully preserved their rich heritage and important traditions.
