Re: Indian boarding school info

Very interesting article Marcella. Thank you for posting it. My relative, Genevieve Comer was at the Chemawa School from 1910-1912. I found a link for the school in case it is of interest to anyone. http://www.chemawa.bia.edu/
We have heard good and bad things about that particular school, apparently my gggrandma saw it as an opportunity to get an education. I was very lucky that she had written so many letters with the applications so they were preserved at the archives. I'm not sure how it turned out. Genevieve's sisters moved to Idaho and Washington to get into schools there.
Blessings,
Stephanie
