Lower Brule

Immerse yourself in the vast, sweeping prairies of the Great Plains of South Dakota, the land of the buffalo! We are the Kul Wicasa Oyate (Lower Brule Sioux Tribe), a band of the Lakota Nation. We warmly welcome visitors to our homeland along Mni Sose, the Missouri River, a place of endless recreational and educational opportunities and unforgettable experiences! The Native American Scenic Byway winds through the valley breaks and broad river terraces of the Reservation, now and then rising to the river bluffs, with their spectacular views of the Missouri and the vast grasslands that extend west over the horizon to the Black Hills. Our special attractions provide both indoor and outdoor activities: the Buffalo Interpretive Center, the Lower Brule Tribal Administration Building, wildlife exhibits at the Department of Wildlife, Fish and Recreation, the Big Bend Landmark, the Narrows Interpretive Area and the Buffalo and Elk Preserve. We have two annual Powwows - the Lower Brule Fair and Rodeo in August, and the Veterans Powwow/Princess Contest in November. Visitors can take part in a variety of Cultural Tours and Programs that will give them a real sense of the tribal way of life, traditional and modern, and the lands, animals and plants that Lower Brule people have coexisted with and used over thousands of years. We offer many forms of Recreation, all year-round – from seasonal hunting, fishing and boating, to hiking, birdwatching and wildlife viewing, to ice fishing and snowmobiling in the winter. The town of Lower Brule offers lodging and food as well as travel essentials at its selection of stores and businesses, which provide groceries, basic drugstore items, souvenirs, and fuel.
