Midstate Memories: Carlisle Indian School Athletes
The Carlisle Indian Industrial School (CIIS), the first U.S. Government off-reservation school for American Indian Children, was located at the Carlisle Barracks, Carlisle, PA and operated from 1879 – 1918. About 10,000 native children attended the school, and of course many were involved with sporting programs at Carlisle. Carlisle’s legendary athletic teams and athletes influenced sports throughout the country.
