Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe

We ask for your prayers, financial and material support and supportive activities here in Roxbury, to enable others to travel and make a difference in the lives of the Lakota people.


We have a number of adults and youth traveling to South Dakota to work on housing rehabilitation and upgrades, helping to construct a commnuity garden program and provide children and adolescent suicide prevention through a daily camp program.


We are working through Simply Smiles of Westport, CT and this will be our 4th time on the Reservation. We have also gone to work in Oaxaca, Mexico with them in the past.
