Oglala Lakota Nation faces significant challenges, the result of centuries of prejudice and disinvestment. Practical neuroscience can help people face these challenges head on, reinforcing a strong and powerful history with culturally coherent teachings.  Weekly meetings and meditations form further community and can help the life-changing lessons to persist.
