These pages are designed, written and executed with the purpose of offering glimpses into the Carlisle Indian School and its history.
The Carlisle Indian School's mission was to shape identity.
In its infancy,
that shaping meant to transform American Indian
children to resemble their so-called "civilized"
It is our
purpose to respectfully
This is a
history that belongs to all Americans.
Much of the
text on these pages reflect the collaborative
purpose in keeping this history alive is
