Welcome to Las Casas: Dominicans in Ministry with Native Americans, Inc. Our mission is to support Dominicans who minister with Native Americans. We affirm the right of Native People to express their culture, language and religion. We hope you share this same passion and concern for people who possess some of the most ancient and rich heritage in the land.

In the history of Las Casas, we have supported and collaborated with Native Americans in several different ways: through on-site ministry, through legal advocacy and more recently, through grants and scholarships awarded to Dominicans who serve in ministry with Native/Indigenous People. Visit our newsletters and grants and scholarships pages for more information.

If you would like to support the ministry of Las Casas, send your donation to the address noted below:
