About Wiconi Family

Camp & Powwow


In 1997, Wiconi ("Life" in Lakota) International was established in response to centuries of misguided individuals telling Indigenous peoples they must renounce their culture to follow Jesus. 


In 2015, Wiconi joined with Indigenous Pathways to continue to strengthen the community that Wiconi had established.

In 2020, with the blessing of Indigenous Pathways, the Wiconi Family Camp and Living Waters Powwow began operating independently. 


With administrative support from The Navigators and funding from friends of Wiconi, we are grateful that campers can continue to dance their prayers and worship in the Jesus Way as Indigenous people.
