We created Cokata Wiconi to meet the specific needs of Cheyenne River’s teens, who told us exactly what they wanted in terms of facilities, resources and programs. Thanks to their thoughtful input, and the support of valued partners such as Running Strong for American Indian Youth, Cokata Wiconi offers an art studio, classroom, dance studio, computer lab, library and full-size gymnasium. Its programs allow us to teach valuable job and life skills, foster wellness, address self-esteem issues, and give our kids a positive, healthy place to socialize, learn, express themselves and pursue their interests.
