This is an example of some of the measures taken to assimilate Native Americans...
The Boarding School era ran from 1890 to the 1980's. The horrors inflicted on our children are beyond what most can imagine.
The photo of the child's handcuffs turns my stomach, and makes me think of the horrors the thousands of Native children had to endure.
There can be no excuse for this type of treatment of children.
Yes, these ''Indian Boarding Schools'' were run by the U.S. Gov't which turned many of them over to churchs. The Catholic church being one of the main players in this horror.
