Notes:
St. Francis Mission was a Jesuit mission established on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota in 1886. The central function of the mission was education, in the form of the St. Francis Mission school. Father Digmann, often referred to as the founder of St. Francis Mission, also established thirty-seven mission stations around the reservation. In 1972 the mission school was turned over to the tribe's community corporation, Sicangu Oyate Ho, Inc., which renamed it St. Francis Indian School.
Summary:
Copy photographs depicting buildings, farms, Dakota Indians, and mission school activities in and around the St. Francis Mission on the Rosebud Reservation. The majority of the photographs were made by Eugene Buechel, a Jesuit who served at St. Francis and Holy Rosary missions. The collection also includes some photographs by Fr. Salvatore Gentile of a Sun Dance on the Pine Ridge Reservation.
