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.

“There were often people in line waiting before I even pull-up with the van and trailer because they needed those things so badly,” said Robin. “There’s never anything leftover and everything in all the boxes is used.”
