Our land base is one of the largest intact grasslands left in the United States. The prairie ecosystem is a diverse and amazing environment, The Prairie Management Program goals has been to improve the prairie ecosystem of the reservation boundaries and decrease overgrazing of range units, also to restore and maintain the ecosystem back to its natural state. Our program is an example of integrating Native American values with scientific techniques to promote the restoration of our prairie lands.
