Welcome to Oglala Strong!

We know that the pandemic and lockdown means that you haven’t been able to see your friends or do social activities like you used to. The isolation has been hard on all of us, youth, adults and elders alike. We need to feel connected to others and have fun together. Otherwise, it’s easy to feel lonely and discouraged, and to lack hope that things will get better.

We know that things WILL get better eventually, but we also know that we want to bring back some joy and activities for our young people to look forward to in the meantime. Because the pandemic will continue to affect our lives for an unknown amount of time, we have to be sure to do so safely. 

For that reason, we created to fill that hole as much as possible. On our site we will be having lots of fun online activities and competitions. We are planning for many different types of activities, so whatever your interests, you should be able to find something you enjoy here! Challenge your friends and family members Reservation-wide! Showcase your talent! Have fun! Maybe even win some prizes!
