Community Supports Waciyanpi

About Waciyanpi

Our Mission

To help prevent the incidents of missing and murdered relatives on the Crow Creek Reservation,
to increase the resources and support for our local search and rescue operations, and to provide support services for those individuals and family members of missing or murdered Indigenous relatives.

Our Organization

Waciyanpi means "Helping My People"

We are a Native led grass roots organization located on Crow Creek Sioux Reservation. We are dedicated to supporting all families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives and their surrounding community.  

We work with families, victims, law enforcement and the community to assist with prevention, recovery, healing and services to help deter and fight the social epidemic of Missing and Murderer Indigenous Relatives.

Crow Creek Sioux Reservation is located in South-central South Dakota on the Eastern bank of the Missouri River, what is now Lake Sharpe and Francis Case. 
There are approximately 137,000 acres of tribal and trust land. 4800 enrolled members.
Meet the Team

Each member of our team has been personally impacted by the  experience of having a Missing or Murdered Indigenous Relative. 

 

Nobody was fighting for the cause of Justice for our Native people. So we decided to work together, get organized and make a difference!

 

We are from this community, we live in this community and we are committed to raise awareness and help the families and our community to heal from the trauma of a missing or murdered relative.  

 

In Waciyanpi, we're reclaiming our traditional values to work not from a hurt place, but from places of love and support for one another. We are taking care of those who are most vulnerable.

Team

Dedication. Expertise. Passion.

This is your Team section. It's a great place to introduce your team and talk about what makes it special, such as your culture or work philosophy. Don't be afraid to illustrate personality and character to help users connect with your team.

COMMUNITY PARTNERS WHO SUPPORT OUR WORK

We are appreciative of local agencies who support our education awareness efforts as well as our Search and Rescue efforts when a relative goes missing.
