For approximately three decades beginning in the latter part of the 19th century, the federal government, in an effort to "tame the savage" and assimilate them into the dominant white culture, uprooted close to a million American Indian children from their reservation tribal homes, transporting them thousands of miles across the country to boarding schools.
Max Spotted Tail (left), a Sioux boy from Rosebud, South Dakota, was among the more than 10,000 American Indian youth who were taken from their families and forced to attend the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Carlisle in the latter part of the 19th century and early part of the 20th century.
The children were stripped of all vestiges of tribal traditions. Their native names were changed to European names and they were forced to adopt the traditions of white America, including language, dress and faith traditions.
Between 1879 and 1918, more than 10,000 American Indian children were housed at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, the federal government's flagship boarding school based on a strict military model. The school's sprawling campus, surrounded by Cumberland County's bucolic farmland, featured wide open sports fields, a gymnasium, classroom buildings and dormitories.
Nearly 200 of the children perished at the school, most from diseases like tuberculosis or consumption. Their remains were never returned to their families. The children's final resting place is on the grounds of what used to be the boarding school and is now part of the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle.
Near the main gate of the barracks along Claremont Road, white headstones laid out in rows mark the graves of those children. Many of the headstones bear names but no birth or death dates. They are decorated with the small stuffed animals, dreamcatchers, toys and pinwheels left by visitors.
Now, some 135 years later, members of some of the tribal nations have mounted an effort to return the remains of their children to their ancestral lands.
First Sioux girls arrive at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School on Oct. 6th, 1879.
On Tuesday, leaders of the Rosebud Sioux, Northern Arapaho, Cheyenne River Sioux, Northern Cheyenne, Standing Rock Sioux and Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate Tribes will meet in Rosebud, South Dakota with representatives from the federal government and the U.S. Army to begin negotiations over the repatriation of the children's remains.
