Lindsey believes that the work of MOA can help strengthen the Rapid City community and provide a legitimate platform to help promote emergent leadership.

“Part of the effectiveness of MOA is connecting community organizations; as ambassadors, we are able network and streamline valuable resources to provide for those who would benefit most. Acknowledging the Native presence and voices within our community is a crucial role in genuine healing and defining our own success, and MOA helps to support this ideology.”
