Hello Relatives, my name is Royal Lost His Blanket-Stone, Jr., I am from the Red Cloud Clan of the Bear Face Band, I am also of the Kit Fox Society, I am part Rosebud Sioux (Sicangu Lakota) and Oglala Sioux Lakota. I am an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe / Sicangu Lakota Nation. My parents are the late Itancan Roy Stone, Sr. and Diana R. (Short Bull) Stone. With a good heart, I shake all your hands.
I currently reside in rural Parmelee, South Dakota i.e. Wososo O`tunwahe on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation. I graduated high school from the Crow Creek Reservation High School (Stephan Indian Catholic Mission/School), Stephan, South Dakota on the Crow Creek Indian Reservation home of the Hunkapti Dakota Oyate.
I attended the Oglala Lakota College, Kyle, South Dakota from August 2010 to December 2013. I have obtained two (2) Associate of Arts degrees in Business Administration and Lakota Studies graduating in June 2012. During this time, I also started working on my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, but decided to transfer to Southern New Hampshire University, Manchester, NH.

I also graduated from the University of Minnesota (Duluth) with an MTAG - Masters in Tribal Administration and Governance on May 8, 2021; and will continue on with my educational endeavours to work on a Ed.D - Doctor of Education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln at the present time.
When I set my goals, I always to do my best to achieve them. I have come this far in my educational goals and I continue to move forward, if there is something I do not know, I can learn and develop within my profession.
