Life on an Indian reservation can be hard.
In some reservation communities, pervasive poverty means that innocent Native American children have to fight for survival. From one day to the next, they might not know where they will sleep, if they will eat or who will take care of them.
Since 1927, St. Joseph’s Indian School has provided a home-away-from-home for over 200 Lakota (Sioux) children each and every year.
Through the generosity of many caring kola — friends — like you, we are able to provide:
St. Joseph’s is fully accredited and meets all the academic standards set forth by the state of South Dakota.
Beyond academics, St. Joseph’s students learn about their traditional Lakota (Sioux) culture by participating in our annual powwow and other cultural activities.
Watch this video and let our students tell you about the challenges they face and why St. Joseph’s Indian School is important to them.
Wopila tanka — many thanks — for giving the gift of HOPE to Native American children!
