Description

Frances Humphrey Lecture Series: Future of the Stewart Indian School by Sherry L. Rupert. Established in 1890, the Stewart Indian School was one of the first 25 of hundreds of Indian Boarding Schools instituted across the nation to assimilate American Indian children into mainstream culture. The school was open for 90 years and educated over 30,000 American Indian students in the multicolored stone structures. The 110-acre campus with over 65 buildings, is the best example of an intact campus that still remains. Rupert will briefly share the school’s past, but focus on the bright future ahead.
