General info

In 1883, Private George Yoakam, who was stationed at Fort Keogh in Miles City, convinced a Catholic bishop to intervene and help the Cheyenne people. The bishop purchased some land and on March 24, 1884, set up the St. Labre Indian school. Four Ursuline Sisters responded to the bishop’s request for nuns and priests and began teaching in a log cabin.

Today St. Labre provides accredited education to over 700 children at three locations on the Northern Cheyenne and Crow Indian reservations. Native American Day is celebrated on the fourth Friday in September. Visitors should stop and see the beautiful campus with a unique teepee-style church and the excellent Cheyenne Indian Museum.
