Keya Gift Shop Information

Key Gift Shop

Situated within the heart of the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota, the Cheyenne River Youth Project's Keya Gift Shop stands as a cultural emporium, offering a treasure trove of artisanal wonders and traditional Lakota craftsmanship. Adorned with an exquisite array of handcrafted jewelry, pottery, textiles and intricate beadwork, the gift shop serves as a testament to the rich artistic legacy of the Lakota people, showcasing their profound reverence for beauty, nature and spirituality. Each meticulously curated piece reflects a deep-rooted connection to the land and a profound appreciation for the Tribe's ancestral traditions. 

With a focus on preserving indigenous art forms and supporting local artisans, the Keya Gift Shop provides a platform for cultural exchange and economic empowerment, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in the captivating tapestry of Lakota heritage. The Keya Gift Shop is a social enterprise created by CRYP, a 35-year-old, Native-led, nonprofit organization that stands as a beacon of hope and transformation for the region's youth. Here, the youth learn skills in Native arts and culture, food sovereignty, wellness, and so much more. Its vibrant 5-acre campus, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation, provides a serene and nurturing environment conducive to healing and growth.
