Digging up children's bodies and past atrocity in Pennsylvania...
The U.S. Army has begun another disinterment
at the site of the former Carlisle Indian Industrial School to reunite the remains of eight Native American children with family members.
WITF reports the children were from the Washoe, Catawba, Umpqua, Oneida, Ute, and Alaskan Aleut tribes.
It’s the fifth such disinterment with the remains of 21 Native American children returned to date. The school was operated by the Department of Interior from 1879 until 2018 with the motto “Kill the Indian, Save the Man.”
More than 10,000 children attended the school from approximately 50 different tribes and more than 180 died from hunger and disease.
Starting in 2016, some remains began being returned as tribes reached out to the Department of the Army.
The Army reimburses families for their travel to participate in a transfer ceremony. It also funds the cost for transport and reinternment.
