Wayawa intancan - student leaders - from St. Joseph’s Indian School recently visited South Dakota’s State Capitol to decorate one of the many trees adorning the halls during the Christmas season.

The group traveled to Pierre in late November to decorate the St. Joseph’s Indian School tree with decorations made by the Lakota (Sioux) boys and girls in their Native American Studies classes.
Each year, the Capitol building in Pierre, South Dakota is adorned with more than 90 Christmas trees decorated by schools, churches and civic groups from around the state. See South Dakota’s Capitol.
Pilamaya — thank you — for helping make so many special holiday memories possible for our students!
After decorating, St. Joseph’s wayawa intancan - student leaders - took the opportunity to tour the Capitol Building.
