All products at Lakota Made are made by Megan L. Schnitker (Bull Bear), an Indigenous herbalist who has been learning traditional plant medicines for over ten years. Her children also assist with harvesting plants and making products, and are continually learning these traditional medicines. Megan is an enrolled Sicangu Lakota of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe located in South Central South Dakota. Her father is hereditary Chief of the Kiyaksa Band of the Oglala Lakota’s Chief Bull Bear.
All Lakota Made product recipes come from 100s of years of oral traditional teachings on medicinal plant uses. By continuing this tradition, we are saving Indigenous teachings from being forgotten.
