The Pretty Shield Foundation has 16 teepees (lodges) in total, used primarily for its Two Worlds Cultural Immersion Camp. The camps bring people together to build relationships, cultural teaching, self-awareness, environmental understanding, teamwork and much more in which individuals gain knowledge, skills, and a heart changing experience. Most recently in December 2020 and January 2021, the teepees were on the Rims, above Billings, Montana for the purpose of bring hope and healing during the recent Covid 19 pandemic. There were more than 120 poles lifted to the sky to form seven teepees, erected in the style of the Apsáalooke (Crow) people.
