& Legislative Hearing to receive testimony on S. 2907
The U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs will hold a hearing Wednesday on Indian boarding schools.
The hearing will examine the Interior Department’s investigative report on Indian boarding schools and the Truth and Healing Commission on Indian Boarding School Policies Act (S. 2907).
Native leaders are scheduled to testify about the report, legislation and what action is needed next.
Advocates have been calling for the Senate committee to hold a hearing on the boarding school legislation and for the House version to be passed.
The Indian affairs committee hearing will be streamed online.
