From May through September we will share boarding school experiences with a monthly screening of films and documentaries on every second Saturday at 11:30 am in Steele Auditorium. Join us in August for:
Our Spirits Don’t Speak English: Indian Boarding School
A Native American perspective on Indian boarding schools. This documentary uncovers the dark history of U.s. Government policy which took Indian children from their homes, forced them into boarding schools, and enacted a policy of educating them in the ways of Western society.
