Name The Carlisle Indian Industrial School
Start 2017/11/29 at 03:00:00 PM
End 2017/11/29 at 04:00:00 PM
Description (old)

In honor of National Native American Heritage Month, instructor Dick Calef will give an overview of the Indian school which operated in Carlisle, PA, from 1879 until it was closed in 1918. The purpose of the school was to remove young Indians from the reservation and immerse them in white culture to promote eventual assimilation of Indians into white society.   This aspect of Indian history is not generally taught in U.S. schools nor is widely known by the public.   However, recent pleas for the return of the bodies of the Indian children buried there, has put the school back in the news.

Dick Calef is an instructor at the Lifelong Learning Institute at Immaculata University in Malvern, PA, and has been active in lifelong learning for over a decade.

This free talk is geared toward adults and teens; registration is appreciated.
