Native American traditions and knowledge are being lost forever. Global Peace Train is dedicated to sharing Lakota wisdom with the world and providing needed resources and education to the Lakota people on Pine Ridge Reservation.

In 2021 we are producing a short film written by Dave Swallow, a Lakota Medicine Man on Pine Ridge Reservation. The film is a Lakota story that bridges modern-day life and a no man’s land, the Badlands of the Indian Reservation. Strange lights reported by the media over the Badlands sparks the interest of an anthropologist who begins an investigation with his colleagues to bring answers about the mystical phenomena.

Presentville

Presentville is the digital game world where players board the Global Peace Train, meet world-changing avatars, and learn about our projects. The Presentville Avatars are birthed through a proprietary community storytelling method that was developed through research conducted on 5 continents on how different cultures play and use stories for social benefit. Each avatar is branded for a different purpose like homelessness, women's empowerment, animal welfare, mental health, children's education, and beyond.
