The Pine Ridge reservation sits within a broader regional economic context, whose primary sectors include tourism, agriculture, manufacturing, and retail. The Pine Ridge Reservation and the Rapid City Metropolitan area are interdependent economies that, to date, channel many economic benefits off-reservation. This Equity and Opportunity Assessment identifies key strategies to create greater vibrancy and equity in reservation-based economic activity–to increase prosperity and quality of life for both the Oglala Lakota people and the region as a whole.
