The first collection of writings and images focused on an off-reservation Indian boarding school, The Indian School on Magnolia Avenue shares the fascinating story of this flagship institution. The contributors to the volume tell the story of of how the federal government worked to transform American Indian students into productive farmers, carpenters, homemakers, nurses, cooks, and seamstresses, and how most students survived the agenda of cultural genocide to benefit themselves and the well-being of their communities.
