Lakota Native American Outreach | Pine Ridge Indian Reservation

Hidden away in the southwest corner of South Dakota lies the second largest Native American Reservation in the U.S., Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, home of the Oglala Lakota Sioux Tribe. With no industry, technology or commercial infrastructure to provide employment for its residents, this Native American population lives in conditions equivalent to those found among the poorest, third world countries. LNAO brings Christ to the tribe through outreach, networking and the teaching of God’s Word. Their mission is to bring together the body of Christ in such a way that the gifts of God may shine on a community that is forsaken and oppressed.

Cityview partners with LNAO through our yearly baby supply drive, after which we assemble packets for moms and their newborn babies being released from the hospital.
