Government rules almost stripped Indians of culture

 


Many American Indian tribes almost lost their culture by the 1960s because of 19th- and early 20th-century U.S. government rules.

American Indians could be removed from their land, resettled on reservations and even have their children sent to special boarding schools to be taught a new way of life. The children were punished if they continued to practice their ceremonies or speak their native language.

Children from the Potawatomi tribe went to either a boys’ or girls’ boarding school, where they learned English and a trade.
