Kurt J. Huber & Ellen B. Huber

The Rev. Kurt J. Huber and the Rev. Ellen B. Huber are the superintending presbyters of the Cheyenne River Episcopal Mission, 12 churches, in the Cheyenne River Lakota Reservation in South Dakota.
“Four of the seven Lakota bands (Minnicoujou, Itazipco, Siha Sapa, and Oohenumpa) are located on the land known as the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation. Collectively the bands are part of the Oceti Sakowin (Seven Council Fires) of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota. The present land base of the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation was established by the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty. Prior to this, the bands placed within this reservation knew no boundary to their territory. They were a hunting people and traveled frequently in search of their main food source, the sacred American bison or buffalo.” (https://www.cheyenneriversiouxtribe.org/history)
