Artist: Nation Cowins
Bio: An enrolled member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, Nation Cowins grew up in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. He discovered CRYP’s Cokata Wiconi (Center of Life) in March 2020, at age 13.
Nation immediately got involved in the teen center’s internships. He completed the Native Wellness, Native Food Sovereignty, Indigenous Foods & Cooking and Art internship tracks, and he says he especially enjoyed working in the Winyan Toka Win (Leading Lady) Garden and in the teen center’s commercial-grade kitchen.
In January 2022, Nation joined the CRYP staff as our first programs assistant trainee. In January 2023, he joined the youth project’s first Youth Advisory Council. He says he’s grateful to have the youth project as a resource on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation, because he feels CRYP provides the opportunities and mentorships teens need to pursue their education and careers after high school.
