In June, the Biden Administration announced it was launching an investigation into the agonizing legacy of Indian boarding schools in America. Journalist Jenni Monet (K'awaika) plotted a multistate investigation of her own, tracing the steps of her great-grandfather, whose bonds to the Carlisle Indian Boarding School in Pennsylvania and its Outing Program have stayed with her family for generations.

The truth about Indian Boarding Schools

This month, we’re asking our readers to help us raise $10,000 to fund our year-long journalism initiative called “The Indian Boarding School Project: A Dark Chapter in History.”  Our mission is to shine a light on the dark era of forced assimilation of native American children by the U.S. government and churches.  You’ll be able to read stories each week and join us for Livestream events to understand what the Indian Boarding School era has meant to Native Americans — and what it still means today.

This news will be provided free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts.  Any contribution of any amount — big or small — gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change. Donate to Native News Online today and support independent Indigenous journalism. Thank you.
