About St. Joseph's Indian School

Since 1927, St. Joseph's Indian School has served Lakota (Sioux) children and families.

Our mission is to educate Native American children and their families for life — mind, body, heart and spirit. This mission drives our organization to educate and provide housing for over 200 Lakota (Sioux) children each year — all at no cost to their families.

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 reestablish pride in their culture by learning the Lakota language, studying Native American culture and healing the broken family circle from which they come.

Stories from our Lakota Indian School

A Look Back at 2019
We’re feeling pretty nostalgic at St. Joseph’s Indian School. The calendar year is coming to an end and we are filled with so much thankfulness and gratitude … because of you!

Take a look as we highlight two great things you helped make possible each month at St. Joseph’s during 2019 …
Cookin’ Up a Feast of Food and Friendship for Others
St. Joseph’s students from the Stevens and Speyer homes recently gave back to others in need, and learned a few new skills along the way!
Bumps in the Road Couldn’t Detour a Donor’s Giving Heart
Judy Horton frantically held the telephone in her hands. She’d just learned the items she and many others collected in Newfield, N.Y., and surrounding towns, were not going to be delivered to St. Joseph’s Indian School by the original driver as planned.

You can be the reason Lakota Children Dream!

The DreamMakers are a special group of friends who give automatic monthly gifts to ensure the Lakota (Sioux) children are provided for year-round. For as little as 32 cents a day, 100% of your monthly contribution will go directly to helping meet our students’ immediate needs … and will help provide dreams for the future.
