"From all over the country thousands of little Indian boys and girls were rounded up and shipped hundreds of miles away to government boarding schools, to be recreated and humanized. They were forbidden to speak their native language. They were punished if they did. Parents were subjected to corporal punishment if they objected. The young ones were made to understand that all that “was before” was wrong...How daring is stupidity!!"
