Sitting about 35 meters from the front doors of the Native Nations Cannabis dispensary in Flandreau is a 30+year-old steel building that contains the next stage of the operation’s expansion.
The building has had many uses over the years, the most notable being the original home of the Royal River Casino. It has also been a bowling alley, and before either of those, a printing press. Now, it’s set to have a new purpose, as the home of the tribe’s second cultivation facility.
Currently, Native Nations, operated by the Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, has one operational cultivation facility which supplies their dispensary with about 80 pounds of product each week. Soon, they hope to be operating the second facility.
“Our average right now would be around 80lbs per week — we’ll be able to increase our capacity to over 120lbs a week out of this building alone,” said Renato Paoli, one of Native Nation’s cultivation managers.
