(I do believe my great grandfather had a similar experience) Native children were taken from their homes and shipped over vast distances to boarding schools, required of all Native children between the ages of 10-18. Children were shorn of their identities in every way, including name, style of dress, and even personal appearance... Students were... taught that they were inferior, and that the school was there to "raise them up" from savagery to the level of non-Natives.
