Extractions: Seeking to educate increasing numbers of Indian children at lower cost, the federal government established two other types of schools: the reservation boarding school and day schools. Reservation boarding schools had the advantage of being closer to Indian communities and as a result had lower transportation costs. Contact between students and their families was somewhat restricted as students remained at the school for eight to nine months of the year. Relatives could visit briefly at prescribed times. School administrators worked constantly to keep the students at school and eradicate all vestiges of their tribal cultures. Day schools, which were the most economical, usually provided only a minimal education. They worked with the boarding schools by transferring students for more advanced studies.
Extractions: Our Residential schools and programs provide students with the necessary structure and time to internalize positive change. Our programs last from six months to two years, allowing time for each child to experience a stable educational community. This fosters personal growth, and healthy self expression, inspires academic excellence, and teaches individual responsibility and service to others. Parents participate in quarterly seminars and family resolution conferences in order to build mutually respectful and responsible relationships. The major goal of all our schools and programs is to realize true healthy growth and assist in the creation of a positive future for each student and their family. Turn About Ranch Turn-About Ranch is a short-term, high-impact therapy program that emphasizes family values and relationships.

Federal Indian policy called for the removal of children from their families and in many cases enrollment in a government run boarding school. In this way, the policy makers believed, young people would be immersed in the values and practical knowledge of the dominant American society while also being kept away from any influences imparted by their traditionally-minded relatives.

Extractions: The Admission of Students into Boarding Schools, Wilderness and Adventure Programs: Are Parent References Useful? "... the loyalty of most parents toward a program is higher if their child is enrolled, cannot come home and the child is in the middle of their program. This loyalty can become even more powerful if another parent's child is injured (or dies) in the program under allegations of neglect or abuse." Revised: February 09, 2003 More information: www.EducationOptions.Org More and more parents are searching for schools and intervention programs to help their children. They are doing this because public schools, community mental health, law enforcement and psychiatric services have failed. Out of shear desperation many parents search across the country and are investigating programs based on advertisements in magazines, television specials, the internet, newspaper articles and the recommendation of consultants. There are good reasons to investigate private schools and programs. "Intervention programs, schools and therapeutic communities are a growing, viable and effective solution for troubled youth. Parents are no longer limited to traditional and often inadequate interventions such as residential treatment, day treatment and psychiatric hospitalization. The problems that can be effectively addressed include substance abuse, developmental delays, psychological disorders, antisocial behavior and failure of a child to achieve their potential. The success stories associated with these new interventions are supported by a growing body of research. " [ Except from

Crosiar 346-3135 NOTE TO EDITORS : For information about "They Sacrificed for Our Survival," an exhibit about the Indian boarding school experience opening Sept. 28 at the UO Museum of Natural History, see the story, "Indian Boarding School Exhibit Opens at Natural History Museum Sept. 28." The first exclusively Indian federal boarding school was opened in Carlisle, Pa., in 1879. Its mission: to civilize Native Americans, who were thought to be primitive and "slow." Its director, army Capt. Richard H. Pratt, often said about his students, "Kill the Indian in them and save the man." Although many administrators were sympathetic to their students, they did not intend to educate future leaders, much less include Native American skills, beliefs and attitudes in their educational model. The United States government and the schools believed Indians were best suited for manual work and should have low expectations in a white world. So, early school programs emphasized farm labor, housekeeping, uniformity and military discipline. In the 1800s, children often were kidnapped and taken to school by force. As public opinion and policy gradually changed, Indian parents became more willing to send their children to school in order to give them marketable skills and a chance to get along in white America.

Extractions: The Oregon State Archives, Secretary of State, 800 Summer St NE, Salem will host in its gallery the exhibit: They Sacrificed for Our Survival: The Indian Boarding School Experience April 14 - May 8, 2000. Federal Indian policy makers in the late 1800s and early 1900s sought to use the schoolhouse -specifically the boarding school- as an instrument for acculturating Indian youth to "American" ways of thinking and living. Only by removing Indian children from their homes for extended periods of time, policy makers reasoned, could white "civilization" take root while childhood memories of "savagism" gradually fade to the point of extinction. The attempted eradication of Indian cultures is still a source of pain for many American Indians. This exhibit introduces a subject little known outside American Indian communities. The stories of Indian boarding school survivors are told in the oral tradition of their ancestors and through historical photographs and student artwork dating from the late 1800s through the 1950s. The photographs illustrate several of the large, off-reservation federal schools Carlisle in Pennsylvania, Chilocco in Oklahoma, and Chemawa in Oregon as well as mission schools in Washington and Idaho. Exhibit materials are part of the Estelle Reel Collection at Cheney Cowles Museum in Spokane, Washington.

Extractions: Ages 13-18 Although most parents first see signs of issues at ages 11-12 if their kids are headed down a self-destructive path, the age group of 13-18 is when it generally reaches a crisis. The largest percentage of teens in residential programs are in the 16-17 year old range. Parents find that when a child reaches this age group, problems that were manageable can become completely unmanageable. The strategies parents have tried again and again seem fruitless, and frustrated parents can be at a loss of how to help their child. As high school graduation approaches, parents may begin to fear for their child's future. Will he graduate from high school? Will she be capable of doing well in college? Will he be able to keep a job with such a bad attitude? Will she get deeper into trouble hanging out with bad influences and experimenting with alcohol? Many parents may have the feeling that "time is running out" to find a solution and give their child a chance for a decent, productive life. It isn't too late. However, if a problem has been allowed to progress for many years, often the best intervention is one that is full timeone that allows the child to catch up academically and pushes the teen to face his or her poor decisions and atttitude. In a residential program adolescents focus on the self-defeating behaviors and attitudes that have held them back or damaged their relationships and progress into responsible adulthood. The protected, secure environment of a therapeutic boarding school offers them a safe place to make up for what often feels like "lost time."
