The purpose of the Lower Sioux Intergenerational Cultural Incubator is to expand art and cultural awareness, skills and support business development through intergenerational learning, production, and transmission at Cansayapi. The Incubator will foster both traditional arts such as pottery, quilting, quilling, beading, regalia, traditional foods, dance, singing as well as contemporary, technology-based art forms including videography and graphic design in the new 15,950 square foot Incubator, which will open in 2020 adjacent to the existing Recreation Center at Lower Sioux. By leveraging our artistic traditions and skilled membership, the Incubator will help strengthen the economic health of the Lower Sioux Community and the region. By 2030, the Incubator will train over 1,200 members and launch over 140 entrepreneurs. The Director will play a leadership role in all aspects of the Incubator, including policy development, education and training, finance, fundraising, and marketing. They will supervise the Operations Manager and collaborate closely with strategic training partners and with other tribal departments, including but not limited to Dakota Futures, Recreation, THPO, Historic Site, Community Health, Social Services, and Environment.
