This banner leads the St. Joseph’s Sobriety Walk each year.
Every year, St. Joseph's Indian School holds three sobriety celebrations to help the Native American children in our care learn to say NO to alcohol and drugs.
- Virtually 100% of the students at St. Joseph’s are affected by alcohol or drug use.
- If addiction isn’t present in their immediate family, it is in their community.
Helping our students learn to make better choices is the only way to break this horrific cycle!
Red Ribbons go up around St. Joseph's campus each October.
- In October, St. Joseph’s Indian School joins schools across the nation in celebrating Red Ribbon Week to show our support for healthy, drug-free lifestyles.
- The Valentine Sobriety Carnival is held in February to brighten the cold winter days.
- April will bring our Annual Sobriety Walk from St. Joseph’s campus into downtown Chamberlain.

Through the generosity of friends like you, St. Joseph’s is able to offer Lakota (Sioux) boys and girls a safe, stable environment where they can live, learn and grow. Learning ways to say NO to drugs and alcohol is a crucial step on their path to a better, brighter future.
Pilamaya — thank you — for making these programs possible!
