Stewart Indian School: Home of the Braves
A few miles south of Carson City, Nevada lies a collection of stone buildings that look like they belong to another time. They represent a complex past that changed the course of generations of American Indians as one of the hundreds of Indian boarding schools built across the United States. They also represent a period in American history when the government thought they could change the thoughts, beliefs, and culture of American Indians across the country. The beautiful stone buildings stand as a testament to the countless stories of hardship, resilience, strength, and the triumphs of native peoples across the Great Basin. They represent the Stewart Indian School, and this is its story.
Join us for the premier screening of the documentary film, produced and directed by JoAnne Peden, with associate director Sam Santoro. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring alumni, scholars, and special guests.
Doors open at 4:00 pm, VIP reception at 5:00 pm, film begins at 6:15 pm.
