Abstract

The South Dakota Cheyenne River Reservation, home to the Lakota Sioux, has one of the highest reservation substance abuse issues in the United States. The aim of research is to share the development of a modified Community-based participatory

research (CBPR) project focused on developing an intervention for youth. This research has been done in collaboration with the program director at the Sioux YMCA and Aze Cante. Aze Cante is translated from the Sioux aboriginal language, and means “run with heart”. The program is a not for profit after school running group with the dual mission of supporting post collegiate runners training after college, while working fulltime on the reservation with the youth in a running program designed to fill free time after school when experimentation with substance abuse typically begins. This work presents the CBPR process focused on substance abuse on the reservation though an afterschool program.
