About Boarding Schools

The Santa Ysabel Tribal Library web site has a posting about a Canadian website about Boarding Schools, Hidden from History. The site contains a lot of material, and a link to a full-length documentary which can be watched online.

The library has a number of books about boarding schools,

      
and the topic must be implicit in many more books, for example, Nicola Campbell's beautiful picture book, Shi-shi-etko, in which a little girl's family helps her build memories of her home on the eve of being sent away to school. And we have a video, Our Spirits Don't Speak English. When we can, we will try to get more materials for children on this topic.
