HVJ Cultural Center awarded grants to improve building and services


The HV Johnston Lakota Cultural Center in Eagle Butte has received funding to renovate the building and improve services.

They were awarded a TECA grant for building renovations and upgrades. “The building has not had any major renovations since it was built in 1973,” said Trini Bird Necklace, Cultural Center Director.

Renovations include a new roof, new ceiling and kitchen repairs. “We’d like to get it back up to code,” Bird Necklace said. “It will be like a remodeled kitchen. It needs an upgrade – it’s long overdue.”
