A Lethal Education: Institutionalized Negligence, Epidemiology, and Death in United States American Indian Boarding Schools, 1879-1934
Beginning in 1879 and continuing well into the twentieth century, the federal government transported at least 830,000 American Indian children hundreds or even thousands of miles away from their families and homelands and incarcerated them in boarding schools in the name of assimilation.
