4:00 PM

The Trent House Association hosts a virtual talk on Saturday, October 23, 2021, at 4:00 p.m. Eastern, describing a project collecting oral histories about a federal Native American boarding school in Oklahoma and developing curricula for teaching this often-forgotten history to elementary and upper-level school students. This is a free program via Zoom at https://bit.ly/3AejSoa.

Chilocco Indian Agricultural School is located in north central Oklahoma and operated from 1884 -1980 as one of a handful of federal off-reservation Indian boarding schools in the United States. Thousands of students passed through the school's iconic entryway arch during its century-long existence. Even today, Chilocco continues to be a powerful site for memory for its remaining alumni from over 127 tribes, Native peoples directly or indirectly impacted by its history, and scholars and students throughout the world who seek to understand its role within the larger context of U.S. Indian boarding schools.
