Wopila (Thank you) Prayer Gathering on June 12th
Riley Pass Mine

A Wopila (Thank you) Prayer Gathering is planned for Friday, June 12th, at 10:00 AM (MDST) at the sacred site near the Riley Pass Mine. However, due to high radiation levels at the site, we ask that no children or young adults attend. Dust masks will be available.

The turnoff to the Riley Pass mine, a red gravel road, is about 1.5 miles past Ludlow, SD, on state Highway 85. Follow the gravel road about 5 miles always turning to the left. We will park at the U.S. Forest Service sign and walk up to the sacred site for the Wopila (Thank You) prayers. It is about a quarter mile, uphill walk.

Potluck lunch will follow at the Reva Gap Campground with a presentation by the US Forest Service.
