3). INDIGENOUS BOARDING SCHOOLS
In the summer of 2021, Indigenous people across Canada started visiting the sites of former Indian Residential Schools. With ground-penetrating radar devices in hand, they slowly swept the earth, hoping, with heavy hearts, to confirm a long-held rumor about the untold numbers of Indigenous children who had vanished while enrolled in these facilities.
Although these recent discoveries in Canada have forced a political reckoning there, the United States is only just beginning to grapple with its own history of Indian Boarding Schools. Starting in the 19th century, the US opened hundreds of schools with the explicit mission… to “Kill the Indian, Save the Man.”

In June 1969, Dennis Lloyd Martin walked off to play a prank on his dad and never returned, sparking the largest search effort in the history of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
