To provide a safe, nourishing, loving environment so our loved ones can reconnect, learn and heal one another with their medicines and gifts.
Founded by Becky and Dallas Chief Eagle, the center welcomes all beliefs, and all peoples, from ALL nations. With the sole intention to share, learn and teach skills to alleviate the burdens of pain ALL families carry. All Nations Gathering Center’s vision is to provide learning experiences that will help us develop the skills to understand, to transform, and manage these medicines throughout our lifetime.
We are building a healthy and healing environment to revitalize our ancient teachings and pull up our moccasins to create a beautiful pathway that will last seven generations and beyond. When you experience All Nations Gathering Center, you will leave with tools that will integrate these four core medicines into one conscious act.
Heightened awareness of Brain/Ego Centric Thinking
Heightened awareness of what your body needs.
Emotional Intelligence, Knowing What you feel
Deepened awareness of what fills your soul and of the Creator
All Nations Gathering Center seeks to provide learning experiences that will help us develop the skills to understand, transform, and manage these medicines throughout our lifetime.
“let's plant seeds of love for our children and families, so they know we love them.”

Spirit-Led, Our Story:
Fifteen years ago the Chief Eagles purchased a 12 ½ acre farm on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Dallas was working out of his home, and Rebecca was working out of her home providing services to families having a hard time spiritually, emotionally, financially, mentally or physically. Rebecca and Dallas joined the union in 2008. Rebecca shared her dream and vision with Dallas. Dallas shared his dream and vision with Rebecca. Together they have been joined spiritually and being led on their journey together. We immediately began a renovation project that, when completed, would serve as a community gathering center. Sweat Lodges were built, and the renovation of the four thousand square foot barn began. We first installed water and sewer lines. We then installed a bathroom, laundry room, and kitchen. We then added a sleeping loft/ meeting room, with both an inside and outside entrance. The barn was then insulated, and a furnace and a wood stove were installed. Up to 300 people have stayed in the house, barn, or camping area while attending a cultural and holistically teaching program and distributing donated goods.
Four years ago we were able to ally ourselves with the Mankind Project. This project has developed emotional intelligence activities for men. It was during one of these events that a buffalo appeared. The participants made a buffalo kill and formed a Tatanka Alliance. Our Elders told us we had not had a successful alliance for 150 years. The last alliance occurred when the tribes united and defeated General Custer. Through this alliance, our weekend experiences provide men with useful emotional tools and skills that are woven into our spiritual teachings. We now have four-day gatherings including Boys to Men, Womanhood Camps, Co-ed Gatherings, Healing 0f Healers (led by Elders), and Couples Retreat. The Mankind Project makes it possible for our people to attend some training and gatherings outside the reservation.
In 2016 a friend was able to participate in a men’s weekend held at our farm. As a result, he offered the use of Tree Haven, a 47-acre site in Yellow Canyon as a possible site for gatherings. His 47-acre property included a 38 hundred square foot building which is on a paved road. The new is a significant improvement because of the muddy travel conditions we faced at the other site. We sold the 12 ½ acre site and bought the 47-acre site for the same price. We moved into the facility in December 2016.
We have completely replaced the water lines, removed insulation, furnace, ductwork, electric lines, lights, internal walls, windows, doors, sinks, tubs, showers,
and kitchen. The volunteers from the Mankind Project, Indigenous Men’s & Women’s Oyate, StoneBoy Women’s Society, residents of the Pine Ridge Reservation, families and other friends have donated their services to accomplish this work and to replace almost all the items above. All Nations is all a volunteer-based dream guided through ceremonies.
Six trainings have happened since December 2016 on the Tree Haven Site in Yellow Bear Canyon. Two Isnati Camps offering Rites of passage for our young girls have been held each year for the young women’s camp. The Elders have told us that all the medicines the world needs are in this canyon.
