Greetings and welcome to the home of Standing Rock Cultural Arts.
Gary Lockwood and Jeff Ingram founded Standing Rock Cultural Arts

Cultural Arts is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization and all donations
are TAX DEDUCTIBLE so please give freely to support this type
of programming. Let’s make this vision a reality in our
