Expansion Project

Center Pole is excited to announce a redesign of our community service, social enterprise and education facilities.

Located in the valley below the site of the Battle of the Little Big Horn on the Crow Indian Reservation in Montana, this project is  attracting the interest and active participation of internationally recognized conservation, design, and landscape groups.

The project will foster principles that reflect just energy transition and indigenous decolonization education, including food sovereignty, regenerative farming, conservation and ecological stewardship, intergenerational healing and indigenous-appropriate community and youth development.

Center Pole will become the headquarters for a think tank of brilliant indigenous minds, to explore ways to build healthy, just communities, providing inspiration, practical guidance and hope for our world.

These brilliant minds will include respected, knowledgeable Elders and renowned specialists.  These cultural leaders and educators will share their perspectives on the principles of the project during radio interviews which will be live streamed on our Crow Voices radio station. Their interviews will attract new listeners which will broaden our already international reach.

Our location overlooks the Little Big Horn Battlefield.  This location is ideal for ceremony, performance and stargazing. It will offer a kitchen for traditional food practices and the potential for a greenhouse that will allow us to expand our production of traditional plants, medicines and food.

 

The new Grounds design will feature permaculture and conservation grassland areas, regenerative gardens, a clean water station, a tipi camp, horse facilities and an artist makers space. The main buildings, radio station, food bank, café and sacred areas will remain the same.   

 

The completed Center and Grounds will house our existing food sovereignty program and healthy foods hub that educates, trains and feeds the community, traditional Crow cultural healing events, heritage activities and education, an artists cooperative, as well as various agritourism and social enterprise activities whose income supplements our operations.
