  1. Away from Home: American Indian Boarding School Stories

    July 2, 2022, All Day
    @

    Manitowoc Public Library

    This National Endowment for the Humanities On The Road exhibit takes a frank look at the US government initiative that began in the 1870s & attempted to assimilate American Indians into “civilized” society by placing children from hundreds of diverse tribes in distant, residential boarding schools. Forcibly taken from their families & stripped of “Indianness,” they were forbidden to speak their own language amongst themselves. Tragedy, familial love, & friendships intersect in this amazing exhibition. This Exhibition is made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is brought to you by Mid-America Arts Alliance. It was adapted from the permanent exhibition, Away from Home: American Indian Boarding School Stories and organized by the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this exhibition do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

    This National Endowment for the Humanities On The Road exhibit takes a frank look at the US government initiative that began in the 1870s & attempted to assimilate American Indians into “civilized” society by placing children from hundreds of diverse tribes in distant, residential boarding schools. Forcibly taken from their families & stripped of “Indianness,” they were forbidden to speak their own language amongst themselves. Tragedy, familial love, & friendships intersect in this amazing exhibition. This Exhibition is made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is brought to you by Mid-America Arts Alliance. It was adapted from the permanent exhibition, Away from Home: American Indian Boarding School Stories and organized by the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this exhibition do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
