Sinte Gleska University gets $5M NASA grant

MISSION — Merging traditional Lakota knowledge and culture with state-of-the-art geo-spatial technology is the impetus behind a $5 million NASA grant to Sinte Gleska University.

The grant is designed to help university administrators and students use geo-spatial data to benefit education, commerce, government and communities in a cultural format.

"We want to produce and develop products and processes that meet the needs of our tribal decision makers," James Rattling Leaf, land and natural resource developer for the Sicangu Policy Institute at SGU, said.

The award will aid in transforming data from earth-systems analyses into products and information. That information can then be used in forming land-management policies and community economic-development projects.

The project is a collaboration of SGU; the U.S. Geological Survey Earth Resources Observation System, or EROS, Data Center of Sioux Falls; Earth Satellite Corp.; and the NASA Ames Research Center.
