Impact of Native American Boarding Schools

Learn about the history and devastating legacy of the Native American boarding schools and the U.S. government’s assimilation policy that led to intergenerational trauma still impacting indigenous individuals, families and communities. Our presenters are Richard Gonzalez and Kate Erickson — accomplished Wisconsin educators who are both members of the Oneida Nation. Both are descendants of relatives who were forced to attend the boarding schools to be “assimilated” into white culture. In this 3-part series, they will share their research and personal stories about the history and impact of the boarding schools as well as the current status and challenges of including Native American history in the curriculum of Wisconsin’s schools.

Dates and locations to be announced.
