A very well written article on ''Indian Boarding Schools'' and their destruction of generations of Native children. In Canada they were called ''Residential Schools'' with the same mission and result to Native children.
These ''schools'' existed until the 1980's.
There have been many reports on the abuse that occurred in these ''schools''...Amnesty International published a report that went into detail on what occured in these schools. Everything from sexual abuse, torture, slave labor and murder.
A long and sad history of ''assimilation'' of Native Americans.
