EXPLORE SOCIAL ENTERPRISES
Because it is a social enterprise, the Keya Cafe is different than any other dining venue on the Cheyenne River reservation. When customers order meals, baked goods, coffee drinks and smoothies at the cafe, they’re directly supporting CRYP’s culturally appropriate, innovative, enduring programming that has effectively served Cheyenne River’s youth and their families for two generations. At its heart, it’s a dining experience that allows customers to play an active role in lifting up the Cheyenne River community. Learn more about the Keya Cafe.

Leading Lady Farmers Market
Our Leading Lady Farmers Market was formally established in July 2013. After nearly 10 years of hosting a small weekly farmers market to sell fresh produce and canned goods from the Winyan Toka Win Garden, CRYP sought to expand the market with a dedicated vision to developing sustainable, sovereign food systems and community-based entrepreneurship. We were able to achieve that in 2014, and in the years since, the market has continued to grow. Learn more about the Leading Lady Farmer’s Market.
