Re: Indian boarding school info
In Response To: Indian boarding school info ()

Stephanie,

Indian boarding schools were early attempts by the white man to force Indians to assimilate government sanctioned values. The prevailing thought was that by removing Native children from their parents, and educating them in boarding schools, they would forget or not be influenced by the traditonal ways of thier elders.
