Our Mission

Dick Williamson, co-owner of Lakota Industries, has long worked on the behalf of the Native Americans living on reservations in South Dakota. He saw that while financial assistance was necessary and commendable, the 75% unemployment rate made self-sufficiency unreachable for most Native families. In 1996, he founded Lakota Archery with the goal of growing a manufacturing component that could be migrated to the reservations, providing employment for the people there. Currently, Williamson is working with several reservations looking for the best site to locate the manufacturing facility. By 2007, Williamson hopes to have a full-scale manufacturing facility producing Lakota Bows on Lakota lands.
