Cultural Writing. Native American Studies. The author, a Professor of American Indian Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder, describes the results of a 100-year program to eradicate Native North American culture. For five consecutive generations, from roughly 1880-1980, Native American children in the U.S. and Canada were forcibly taken from their families and relocated to residential schools. The stated goal of this government program was to "kill the Indian to save the man." Half of the children did not survive the experience, and those who did were left permanently scarred. The resulting alcoholism, suicide, and the transmission of trauma to their own children has led to a social disintegration with results that can only be described as genocidal. Includes 40 B&W photographs and illustrations.
