Product Description
Chapters: Shattuck-Saint Mary's, Hillcrest Lutheran Academy, Minnesota State Academies. Source: Wikipedia. Pages: 18. Not illustrated. Free updates online. Purchase includes a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Excerpt: Shattuck-St Mary's School (also known as SSM) is a coeducational Episcopal Church-affiliated boarding school in Faribault, Minnesota, and is known for its Centers of Excellence hockey, soccer and figure skating programs. In the last decade, SSM has attracted national attention in areas the school refers to as "Centers of Excellence," namely ice hockey, soccer, figure skating, and the arts. National Championships for SSM include the 2008 and 2007 18U Boys Hockey teams and the 2007 19U Girls Hockey team. The 2007 win for the 19U girls was their third straight National Championship. The 2007 16U Boys team placed second in nationals and the 14U Boys were also in the 2007 National tournament but lost in the Semifinals. On the ladies side the 16U team was also in the 2007 Nationals but failed to win a game. The Girls U19 team in 2009 won the National Championship to regain their highly established reputation. A federal- and state-listed endangered species, the Dwarf Trout Lily, was initially discovered on the school's campus by a St. Mary's biology instructor in 1871. On June 3, 1858, in a small rented building in Faribault, Minnesota, The Rev. Dr. James Lloyd Breck established the Episcopal mission school and seminary from which Shattuck-St. Mary's School has developed and prospered. When the school first opened, there were 45 young girls and boys and six divinity students, both Native American and white. About this time, the newly established Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota selected Henry Benjamin Whipple as its first Bishop. Bishop Whipple established his home in Faribault and, in 1860, took over the reins of the school, changing...More: http://booksllc.net/?id=2359010 ... Read more

Product Description
"For those convinced that Indian boarding schools were solely instruments of psychological and cultural oppression, Fortunate Eagle's account will be both surprising and unsettling. Pipestone is artfully told, frequently humorous, and deeply moving."--David Wallace Adams, author of Education for Extinction: American Indians and the Boarding School Experience, 1875-1928

Best known as a leader of the Indian takeover of Alcatraz Island in 1969, Adam Fortunate Eagle now offers an unforgettable memoir of his years as a young student at Pipestone Indian Boarding School in Minnesota. In this rare firsthand account, Fortunate Eagle lives up to his reputation as a "contrary warrior" by disproving the popular view of Indian boarding schools as bleak and prisonlike.

Fortunate Eagle attended Pipestone between 1935 and 1945, just as Commissioner of Indian Affairs John Collier's pluralist vision was reshaping the federal boarding school system to promote greater respect for Native cultures and traditions. But this book is hardly a dry history of the late boarding school era. Telling this story in the voice of his younger self, the author takes us on a delightful journey into his childhood and the inner world of the boarding school. Along the way, he shares anecdotes of dormitory culture, student pranks, and warrior games. Although Fortunate Eagle recognizes Pipestone's shortcomings, he describes his time there as nothing less than "a little bit of heaven."

Were all Indian boarding schools the dispiriting places that history has suggested? This book allows readers to decide for themselves. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars a rare, first hand account
Despite our historical knowledge of the impact of the boarding school period on native american culture and families, it is amazing to find a personal account that managed to find positives in what most other could only attribute negatives. Fortunate Eagle's boyhoood reminiscence allows for the child-like acceptance of one's living conditions. When compared to the wretching poverty of the reservation, the boarding school with 3 square meals a day, seemed like a salvation to some. Fortunate Eagle believes the regimentation it taught, served his brothers well in their future military careers.This is a unique view-point and should be included in any studies on the boarding school period, particularly since it is from one who lived it.

2-0 out of 5 stars An anecdote can't disprove the majority of the evidence
One 'fortunate' personal experience can not disprove the horrors experienced by tens of thousands others at numerous locations throughout both the Canadian and USA Sectors of the British Occupation Zone of the Americas. ... Read more

Product Description

The Carlisle Indian School and the Haskell Institute in Kansas were among the many federally operated boarding schools enacting the U.S. government's education policy toward Native Americans from the late nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century, one designed to remove children from familiar surroundings and impose mainstream American culture on them.To Show What an Indian Can Do explores the history of sports programs at these institutions and, drawing on the recollections of former students, describes the importance of competitive sports in their lives. Author John Bloom focuses on the male and female students who did not typically go on to greater athletic glory but who found in sports something otherwise denied them by the boarding school program: a sense of community, accomplishment, and dignity.
