This is an educational program for students to come and learn about the boarding schools that existed both here in the U.S. and in Canada. The Boarding school system was designed to assimilate native/ indigenous youth into society. Often native children had been kidnapped and forcefully removed from their homes and placed into the boarding schools. At the schools, the children were not permitted to speak their tribal language, wear regalia, practice traditional ways and were often abused. Students are welcome to come and participate in dialogue surrounding the historical practice.
