The Lasting Effects of Native American Boarding Schools

Kiowa author N. Scott Momaday writes about the history and experience of the Native American boarding schools in his screenplay, The Moon in Two Windows, set at Carlisle Indian Industrial School, the very first of this type. This presentation will discuss not only the students' experiences in the schools, but also what happened to the ones who survived, how this history is taught in modern day classrooms, and the overall lasting legacy of the boarding schools today.
