In 2011 the State Cemetery Grants Program selected 75 acres of land on the Rosebud Sioux Tribe land to serve as the first cemetery for our Nation’s Native American Veterans.  Wyss Associates, Inc. was selected from a national RFP to design the cemetery that would be the first of its kind.  Working with the Rosebud Sioux Tribe along with the State Cemetery Grants Agency, Wyss Associates led the team to design this important facility on sacred ground.  

The design includes all infrastructure to the cemetery including, water, sewer and electrical.  A state of the art public information building, committal shelter and columbarium were coordinated so that these items were low impact to the site.  Native landscape items are installed to naturally fit within the surrounding terrain.  Drought tolerant turf was selected to reduce water usage.  The irrigation system was designed with state of the art hardware to achieve maximum plant growth without wasting  resources.  Irrigation system included a weather station, moisture sensors and flow sensors to reduce staff requirements and water waste.
