Indian Boarding Schools

DVD - 2009
Rate this:
American Indian children were placed in federally-sponsored boarding and day schools from 1879 for almost 90 years to be assimilated into white American culture. Educational policies reflected the misguided belief that stripping away a child's tribal identity would benefit every Indian youth, and society at large. However, the boarding school experiment failed to achieve its aims. Worse yet, it created multi-generational trauma which contemporary Native American societies still struggle to overcome. This program presents a comprehensive history of the Indian Boarding School movement in the USA, told in the voices of children and teenagers who lived it. Accompanying documents are provided to assist instructors and students in furthering their knowledge of this chapter in American history.
