A DREAM CATCHER FOR THE FUTURE

Updated: May 28, 2021

La Fleur by Livvy has always believed in giving back to the less fortunate. Besides sponsoring a girl’s education in India, we are now sponsoring a young girl in the Lakota (Sioux) Nation. Our sponsored child Amelia is residing at St. Joseph’s Indian School established in 1927 is a non profit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.


Amelia is just one of 200 residents so they still need help providing for the children. Our donation goes toward everything from towels and bedding, clothes, toiletries, to school supplies for Amelia.



A once proud nation, the Sioux now send their children to St. Joseph’s to escape families torn by poverty and addiction. They are given an education and hope for their future because opportunities for Native Americans are few and far between. Dream catchers play a significant role in shaping their lives. According to Native American lore, the air is filled with good dreams and bad dreams and the dream catcher allows the good dreams to come through its center while the bad dreams are trapped in the web and perish in the light of dawn. To a child like Amelia who faces hunger and poverty every day this is significant. Lakota (or Sioux tribe) believe the dream catcher holds the destiny of their future. The elder Iktomi, who created the dream catcher, said "Use the web to help yourself and your people ... to reach your goals and make use of your people's ideas, dreams and visions”. St. Joseph's School can provide the hope, and sponsors like us can provide for basic physical needs thus bridging a gap to help these children. This is a story where one person can make a difference.


We are grateful to St. Joseph's for sending us this beautiful dream catcher and sponsonship opportunity as well as to discover and learn more about what they do for the kids.
