Our Spirits Don't Speak English: Indian Boarding Schools

DVD: $24.95


Told from the Native American perspective, this documentary uncovers the dark history of the U.S. Government policy and will give a voice to the countless Indian children forced through the system. Imagine you are a child, taken from your home, your family, taken from everything you know. In 1869 the US government enacted a policy of educating Native American children in the ways of western society. By the late 1960's more than 100,000 had been forced to attend Indian Boarding School.
