PRESENTATION: BOARDING SCHOOL STORIES

October 25, 2016 @ 7:00 pm9:00 pm

BOARDING SCHOOL STORIES is an innovative new media website that educates students in a visually stunning and engaging way about the history of the American Indian boarding school system, a policy of forced assimilation imposed on more than 100,000 Native American children between 1879 and 1975. The site is organized around visual histories of boarding school survivors and alumni.

The Autry Museum of the American West’s Works-in-Progress series will present the prototype of the website, and play excerpts from the visual histories. Afterwards, participants will have a chance to ask questions and provide feedback as we go from prototype to fully operational. The Event is Free.

October, 25th, 7-9pm
The Autry Museum of the American West
4700 Western Heritage Way
