Welcome to the National Federation of the Blind of South Dakota World-Wide Web Site
The real problem of blindness is not the lack of eyesight. The real problem is the misunderstanding and lack of information that exists. If a blind person has proper training and opportunity, blindness is only a physical nuisance.
We are a proud member of the National Federation of the Blind, the Nation's oldest and largest organization of blind persons in the United States with local chapters and affiliated divisions of blind consumers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
Our new home on the World-Wide Web is a leading source of information on blindness and the activities of the National Federation of the Blind of South Dakota. We invite you to explore these pages and learn about our parent organization by visiting the links on this page to access additional information about the NFB and how we are changing what it means to be blind.
