There is a growing movement in Indian Country to raise healthy food on site, and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe has joined that initiative.

The Rosebud Economic Development Corporation (REDCO) hosts a food sovereignty program. It focuses on the health of the community and the autonomy of the tribe.

Coordinator Michael Prate explained the program at the Oceti Sakowin Treaty Conference held this week in Rapid City.
