OGLALA SIOUX TRIBE: Preamble
We, the Oglala Sioux Tribe of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, in order to establish a more perfect organization, promote the general welfare, conserve and develop our lands and resources, secure to ourselves and our posterity the power to exercise certain rights of home rule not inconsistent with Federal laws and our treaties, and in recognition of Go Almighty and His Divine Providence, do ordain and establish this constitution for the Oglala Sioux Tribe.
OGLALA SIOUX TRIBE: About Us
There are three diverse geographic regions within the reservation. The southern and eastern sections consist of picturesque grassy plains. The west-central section merges with the small eastern spurs of the Black Hills. The result is an area of rolling pine-covered hills and ridges, providing the inspiration for the name Pine Ridge. To the north of the wooded area are approximately 160,000 acres of the Badlands National Park.

Welcome to the Oglala Lakota Nation informational website. This new portal of information was created to provide the most up to date information coming out of the tribal council, executive board and all of the programs and offices that serve the membership of the Oglala Lakota Nation.
Watch for updates weekly, if not daily, on job announcements, new legislation proposed and passed by Tribal Council and programs that offer services for our Oyate.
Our office is located in the old Social Service office next door to the Red Cloud Building. We are open to suggestions and ideas about how to make this website as interactive and compliant with our tribal memberships needs.
If you would like to see more information or forms from any particular program or office, please contact that office and let them know what you would like to see made available.
Information about events on or around our reservation can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and an announcement can be built and added to the website.
Again, welcome to OUR OST website. Bear with us as we make daily improvements in real time. We are growing and evolving as we become aware of the needs.
