Greetings from St. Joseph's Indian School!

This coming school year will mark St. Joseph’s Indian School’s 98th year of caring for Lakota (Sioux) children — mind, body, heart and spirit.

After all these years, we have learned a thing or two about what it takes to provide a memorable and quality childhood for Native American children. We’ve had times of victory and success. We’ve also had times of stumbling that allowed us to take a step back and start again. Our school is not stagnant, but is ever changing.

Each year, new children arrive on campus for the first time. We’re also greeted by familiar faces from families we have been fortunate to work with for years. In this newsletter, you’ll read about what that first day and week look like for students… because of generous and kind people like you who make it possible!

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

God makes a way for our Lakota students through the kindness of others who are His hands and feet on Earth. We’re so appreciative to know the Lakota children are in your thoughts, prayers and actions.

Philámayayethank you — for opening your hearts to the children in our care as we embark on a new school year in August!

Peace and Blessings,
