So much need. So many hardships. Can my $12 really make a difference?


St. Joseph’s Indian School is privately funded by many friends who believe in us, and want the best for the Lakota (Sioux) children we serve.

Our Candy Cane Christmas Store isn’t about fancy gifts. It’s about the simple things — a warm coat and gloves, a nutritious meal and a little something special to show a child you care.

One by one, people just like you make our work possible.

Grateful for clothes, warmth and house parents

Thanks to you, we are able to provide a well-rounded education, nutritious food, warm clothing, a cultural education, college scholarships and programs that strengthen families.

And yes, even a little something special at Christmas.

"I am grateful that donors support our school and I will pray for them."
