The Red Road approach is a natural therapeutic modality for our Lakota People because it is based upon our historical and modern life ways. Whether one is immersed in the Lakota culture, just relearning or balancing the mainstream life-ways and the Lakota life-ways, the Red Road Approach is equally effective.
We come together to share our professional, vocational and personal life experiences in a safe and supportive environment. Through this sharing, we are actively participating in the teachings of Mitakuye Oyasin (All my Relations)." ~ Gene D. Thin Elk
