Boarding schools: A black hole of Native American history
Eagle Butte, S.D. - Zigmund Hollow Horn sat inside the deanery of a small Episcopal church just off Eagle Butte's main street. A thick fog had settled over town. The engine of his pickup, parked outside, pinged and crackled.
Sitting on a couch, his eyes trained outward and down, he began to talk about his life.
"I'm a 65-year-old male, Native American, recovering alcoholic of 25 years," he said. "I've been in pain ever since I can remember," emotional pain, physical pain. "Day in and day out, I go to bed with it," he said.
