Traditional Indian Education
The traditional way through which Native American children were educated for the responsibilities that they would assume as adults was by working with and imitating their elders. There was no "school" as it was understood by nineteenth century Europeans. Rather, children were allowed to roam freely throughout the community stopping and asking questions when and where they pleased. Children would work companionably alongside their parents or other adults, helping in small ways and gaining confidence and ability in various skills. Children often engaged in what the Dakota referred to as "small play," impersonating adults and mimicking their activities, conversations, and manners. Grandparents played a very important role in the education of children. Grandmothers, for example, bore responsibility for making girls "well behaved women." A grandmother would take it upon herself to tutor her granddaughter in the subtleties of daily life, such as how to move, how to interact with elders, where to sit at ceremonial occasions. In the evening it was common to send a daughter to her grandmother bearing a gift of food or tobacco. The gift was an invitation to the grandmother to instruct the child in the tribe's traditions that would help the girl understand both her place in the tribe and her people's place in the world.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT BOARDING SCHOOLS The most famous boarding school for Indian children was the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania, founded by Richard Pratt in 1879. The philosophy and intent of this and most subsequent schools was to assimilate Indian children by removing them from their native cultures, and teaching them the manners, dress, and job skills that were deemed important by the school founders and administrators. While boarding schools still exist, most had changed their practices of forced assimilation by the 1930s. This bibliography only covers the schools from 1879 to 1940. It does not contain any novels. It is not a complete list.

Justification and Rationalization

Day Schools vs. Boarding Schools
Carlisle Indian School and Richard Henry Pratt The System Begins to Fail By way of introduction: The Reservation Boarding School System was a war in disguise. It was a war between the United States government and the children of the First People of this land. Its intention was that of any war, elimination of the enemy. The reason this war is difficult to recognize is because it was covered by the attractive patina of a concept called "Manifest Destiny." Manifest Destiny was a philosophy by which the white european invader imagined themselves as having a divine right to take possession of all land and its fruits. The reason that the Concept of Manifest Destiny was so effective was because, as it steam rolled across the land, it dragged the masses with it. The hooks that dragged these masses were many and were forged by Christianity and the Christian imprimatur. Although the fuel that energized Manifest Destiny was economic, the inspiration was in its alignment with divine will. This quote from the essay

    Thanks to the Nokomis Learning Center for assistance. Hi, My name is Joe. I am in fifth grade. I like my school because there are kids like me who are Native Americans. Others kids are the descendents of white settlers, and some are the descendents of slaves. We share the stories of the history of our families so we can understand each other better. I like to go to pow wows with my family. Pow wows are times when I can see other indian friends and share the rituals of our people. I also like to talk with my grandfather. He tells me stories about indians in Michigan a long time ago. The first story I would like to share with you is a legend about food. Remember, at one time there were no grocery stores in Michigan. People had to grow or hunt for everything they ate. Because food is so important, they made up interesting stories about their food.

    The Government has been urged to encourage the establishment of more day schools in the country as one way of averting student unrest. The co-ordinator of multi-teaching and learning at University of Michigan, USA, Prof Andrew Thompson Miller, says when compared with boarding schools, day schools are not prone to strikes. Miller adds that research carried out in the US indicated that the highest rate of strikes took place in boarding schools. It was established that boarding schools cut students and pupils away from their families and communities at an age when they badly needed guidance from parents and elders.
