History: St. Dominic founded the Order of Preachers, 12th century. They made their first U.S. foundation, ca. 1800, and subsequently created four provinces for administrative purposes with St. Albert the Great Province administering operations in the central states. Without committing his province to Native American ministry, Rev. Charles Leute, O.P. (Sac & Fox), has personally served the following parishes among Native Americans in South Dakota and North Dakota:

Our Lady of the Sioux Church (Oglala Lakota), Pine Ridge Reservation, Oglala, South Dakota
