Arts & Crafts
All cultures utilize the arts to provide social commentary, whether it is the expression of emotions, the documentation of historical events, or the preservation of heritage. The Lakota, also, have a rich history as craftspeople and artisans, a tradition that CRYP respects and promotes in its activities. Learn more about Arts & Crafts at the Main.
At CRYP, literacy is not just about reading. It’s about developing comprehension skills, exploring new ways to express yourself, and appreciating different forms of communication. And, it’s about having fun. Learn more about Literacy at the Main.
A healthy body is vital for improving self-esteem, gaining confidence and keeping the mind open to new ideas and information. Through our Wellness activities, our children enjoy recreation, mentorship and teamwork while learning new skills. Learn more about Wellness at the Main.

We encourage children to attend The Main on a regular basis through our fun, creative and educational Clubs. In each session, the kids build on what they learned the previous week, and they strengthen their connections to their mentors, peers and Lakota values. Learn more about The Main’s Clubs.
