Rapid City Community Conversations

Community innovation to reverse institutional and individual racism through conversations focused on relationship-building and shared values.

On the eastern edge of the Black Hills, Rapid City is an urban interface for Indians from many regional tribes. It is in the sacred heart of treaty lands of the Lakota. It is a place where the Oceti Sakowin (“seven council fires”) gathers regularly, and home to between 15,000 and 20,000 native people.

Rapid City Community Conversations (RCCC) was formed as a native-led grassroots movement. Our mission is to foster a citizen dialogue that collaborates with community leaders to design innovative approaches to steadily reverse the long history of institutional and individual racism in our community. Native and non-native citizens are co-creating a new community that reflects our shared values and honors, respects, and keeps safe all of the people who live here.
