454. Tekakwitha Orphanage
The Tekakwitha Orphanage in Sisseton, South Dakota housed a number of children some decades ago. Among the employees were a pastor who according several of the children who were forced to live at the Orphanage raped the children. He was never convicted. That is why we don’t mention his name in this blog. However you can find his sorry name in the sources to this article.
It is safe to conclude that it could not have been fun to be there as a child.
