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

When a Horse Becomes a Canvas
St Joseph’s Indian School high school girls were given an opportunity to work with their four legged ancestors, the šúŋkawakȟáŋhorse, through a collaboration of St. Joseph’s Equine Therapy and Daughters of Tradition programs.
Prayers in the Wind: St. Joseph’s Students Make Prayer Flags
A blank, rectangular piece of fabric was recently placed before each student at St. Joseph’s Indian School. It was accompanied with art supplies in all shades of the rainbow.

These were the ingredients for which the students would use to pray.
St. Joseph’s Recognizes Child Abuse Prevention Month
On April 13, 2021, Child Services staff at St. Joseph’s Indian School braved the high winds and cold in order to take pictures for Child Abuse Awareness month. Staff wore blue shirts with the motto “Strengthening Families and Communities.”
