Boarding School Seasons: American Indian Families 1900 -1940

$ 15.00

Boarding School Seasons powerfully reveals the experiences and perspectives of American Indian students who attended federal boarding schools. In Boarding School Seasons: American Indian Families, 1900–1940, Brenda Child skillfully uses primary documents, personal letters, and school newspapers to unveil the important stories of Ojibwe children who attended the Haskell Institute in Kansas and the Flandreau School in South Dakota. The historical context in which the Ojibwe lived is vividly captured in actual letters and documents from the schools and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA). This book provides a glimpse into Ojibwe families’ thoughts, motivations, and hopes for the future — perspectives that have often been overlooked in historical research.
