 In the late 19th century through the early 20th century, the United States government required Indian children to attend off-reservation boarding schools. Operated under the Department of War, the schools were used as a tool to prepare Native American children for assimilation into America’s melting pot. A rarely told chapter of American history, these boarding schools dramatically altered the lives of its students and the generations that followed.
