"Horse Wisdom"


The Horse Nation has been a part of Lakota culture for thousands of years. It seems only natural for NAAP to move towards bringing back those relationships with the Horse Nation and native youth.


Sunka Wakan Otakuye Curriculum is hands on learning with the horses, opening the door for Lakota youth to re-unite with the Horse Nation.
The horses interact with the youth in ways that help youth better understand their own actions and behaviors
