Project Summary

We are co-creating ecological infrastructure on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Guided by First Nations wisdom & permaculture design principles. ​ Campers bring a vibrant and dedicated energy, while working to support the vision of the OLCERI (Oglala Lakota Cultural and Economic Revitalization Initiative), honor Indigenous ways, and acquire ecological design skills through hands-on experiential projects.

Project Description

Located on Pine Ridge Reservation, the sovereign nation of the Oglala Lakota people, IWPS Convergence works to amplify the initiatives of tribal organizations who collaborate to address food scarcity, poverty, and lack of adequate housing. We understand the Lakota can help their own community best - that's why we only support existing Lakota initiatives that will be maintained after the convergence ends. Volunteers from across the nation gather together with renowned ecological teachers and tribal leaders for one week or more. Side by side, attendees practice ecologically-minded skills through hands-on experiences, and participate in workshops that empower them as leaders to take on the environmental and social justice challenges of today. We are converging in support of OLCERI: the Oglala Lakota Cultural and Economic Revitalization Initiative. For 17 years, OLCERI has provided low-tech, highly accessible solutions to challenges on the Pine Ridge Reservation such as food scarcity, lack of adequate housing, and extreme poverty. OLCERI is designed to restore resilience, self-sufficiency, economic independence, and cultural revival among the Lakota people.

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.

pri_teacher

PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
