Concrete Evidence
Bonus Content

Another storyline in Concrete Evidence was the U.S. Government’s practice of forcing Native American children to attend boarding schools starting in the 1870s.  The purpose of these schools was to “Kill the Indian...and save the man” (Col. Richard Pratt, 1892).  Intent on assimilating Native Americans, children were forcibly removed from their homes (sometimes by armed police) and sent to live in these off-reservation boarding schools. 

NPR aired this story on American Indian Boarding schools in 2008.
