Membership & Donation
The Keepers of The Sacred Tradition of Pipemakers is a non-profit organization in Pipestone, Minnesota, that was formed in 1996 by local Native Americans and tribal leaders to protect and educate the public about the nearby pipestone quarries.
The Keepers members are in 40 states, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, Sweden, Faroe Islands and Australia — and more than half are tribal members from over 35 different tribes.
Keepers bring both national and international recognition to Pipestone by traveling all over the world to present and educate people about American Indian history and culture. Keepers President Bud Johnston has taken American Indian dance groups to Europe several times to allow tribal youth to showcase their talent and community to the world.
The organization works with local Native American organizations to provide goods and resources to local Indian reservations, as well as with schools and prisons to help people understand tribal culture.
