RESILIENCE: The Boarding School Experience of Warm Springs and beyond

Boarding Schools have had lasting impacts good and not so good for many Native American children. You will see and hear first hand observations from some that have lived the boarding school experience. Some memories will be heartfelt, poignant, sad, bitter, but most important, it will be the truth, as remembered by the students, now parents and grand parents.

In the decades past, families were not given the choice for their children to attend boarding schools. Over time, it became a choice, tribal high school students are now opting to attend boarding schools, finding positive learning experiences. You will see and hear their memories as well.

You do not want to miss this meaningful, candid account of Boarding Schools, then and now.
