A Film Examines History & Forced Assimilation Of Native American Children

Home from School: The Children of Carlisle is a documentary film that retells the story of a delegation of tribal elders and youth from the Wind River Reservation who traveled to the U.S. Army War College in Pennsylvania, to retrieve the bodies of Northern Arapaho children who died over a century ago at a Native American boarding school.

The film screens tonight Thursday, September 22 at the Museum of Boulder with a Q&A presentation afterward by its Associate Producer and Northern Arapaho Chairman, Jordan Dresser.

KGNU’s Rossana Longo-Better got the details from Emily Zinn, Director of Education at the Museum of Boulder.
