About Us

Our school, located in Southwest Omaha with an enrollment of approximately 465 students, was named after Nicholas Black Elk, a Lakota Sioux Indian. He became known through the writing of John Neihardt in his book, Black Elk Speaks. Black Elk shared his life and visions with Neihardt because he wished to pass along to future generations some of the reality of Native American life and to share some of his dreams which were not yet realized. His vision of a new circle of community reaches out to all people today.
