M1 Discussion 2: Indian Assimilation

M1 Discussion 2: Indian Assimilation

Overview

The purpose of this discussion is to help you imagine how it felt to be an Indian forced to undergo assimilation at a boarding school far from home and try to understand also the point of view of other people at the time.

Instructions

For this discussion, review your readings for Unit 2.  Afterwards, you will analyze the photo of Tom Torlino embedded here. You might also look at

Tom Torlino’s school record

at the Carlisle Indian School site. Feel free to do research outside the course if you’d like other points of view.

What impact would the transformation of Tom Torlino and others like him who attended the Carlisle Boarding School have on the following groups?  ex: a Navajo child sent to a boarding school, white male Christian missionary and an African American. 

Be sure  address how each group might have felt and  what their ideals were during this time.

Tom Torlino, a member of the Navajo Nation, entered the Carlisle Indian School, a Native American boarding school founded by the United States government in 1879, on October 21, 1882 and just before he departed on August 28, 1886. Torlino’s student file contained photographs from 1882 and 1885.
