Runner-up Nominations

Boarding schools had a tremendous impact on the history of American Indians in Minnesota, as well as across North America. The Pipestone Boarding school in southwestern Minnesota was a government operated boarding school that educated Dakota and Ojibwe people in the region, in an era when Indian education meant learning English, adopting Christianity and Americanization and assimilation. Many tribal people feel the legacy of these schools is still felt today within their communities.
