Penpals from the Past: American Indian Schools in the United States (Webinar)
Thursday, December 13, 2018 (Offered at both 7 PM and 10 PM Eastern Time)
Is there anything more compelling than a letter from a penpal? What if you and your students could read letters or even see Christmas lists from American Indian students living in boarding schools in the past or see images of students in their classrooms?
Join us for a look at some examples, learn a little about their experiences and engage in the formerly complex process of accessing American Indian boarding and day school records now made easier through our Native Communities Program.
