Where are the Indigenous children that never came home?
An untold number of students at Carlisle Indian School disappeared. Tribal nations raise the stakes in search of answers.
This story was done in collaboration with
When Yufna Soldier Wolf was a kid, she was made well
aware of why her family members only spoke English, and why they dressed
the way they did. Her grandfather and other elders used to recount
their experiences at boarding schools, where the government sent
hundreds of thousands of Indigenous children, from nearly every
Indigenous nation within U.S. borders, to unlearn their languages and
cultures. “A lot of them were physically abused, verbally abused,
sexually abused,” she said.
