Mission is a small city in South-central South Dakota, located within the Rosebud Indian Reservation.

Mission was founded as a city in 1915, though its post office dates back to 1912.

The name of the city comes from the missions put on by various religious organizations to "educate" (force into Christianity) the native people that lived in the area.
