Beginning in 1890, thousands of American Indian children were sent to Stewart Indian Boarding School in Carson City, Nevada as part of the U.S. government’s policy of forced assimilation. This community forum provides an opportunity to learn about and discuss this history and the traumatic legacy that remains. Participants include Stacey Montooth, Executive Director of the Nevada Indian Commission; Dr. Debra Harry, Associate Professor in the Department of Gender, Race, and Identity, University of Nevada, Reno; and the debut of Jean LaMarr’s performance, They Danced, They Sang, Until the Matron Came.
This program is a hybrid presentation.
Co-presented by Stewart Indian School Cultural Center & Museum, Carson City, Nevada
