About Us

St. Joseph's Indian School has served Lakota (Sioux) children and families since 1927. Our mission — to educate Native American youth mind, body, heart and spirit — drives us to house and educate 200 children each year.

Child poverty and abuse are serious issues on Indian reservations. By supporting St. Joseph's Indian School, you are helping Native American children in need regain pride in the Lakota (Sioux) culture by learning the Lakota language, studying Native American culture and healing the broken family circle from which they come.
