Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe

These are our neighbors.  How can we let this be?


On the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Reservation in South Dakota there exists poverty on a staggering scale.  As our first domestic endeavor, Simply Smiles is honored to have been welcomed into this community and to be able to support these incredible children and their families.

We are committed to a vision to curtail suicides, to provide basic needs, to give children an alternative to the dangers of the streets, to preserve and cultivate the rich Lakota Culture, and to provide bright futures for these impoverished children.

The needs on the reservation are shocking. Take a look at these facts.
