The Native American Treasure of Blue Cloud Abbey

In the critical year of 1876 Benedictine Monks came to Dakota Territory and at the request of Sitting Bull at Standing Rock set up the first of several schools. In 1966 there evolved from the schools and from the inspiration of the students the AMERICAN INDIAN CULTURE RESEARCH CENTER at Blue Cloud Abbey.

The principal purpose of the Center is to inform the general public of the world view, the philosophy of life, the spiritual insight of Native Peoples.

This video gives a brief glimpse into the AICRC formation and developments.
