Federal boarding schools: now what?
The U.S. Department of Interior released its much-anticipated report chronicling a century and a half of widespread abuses at federally sanctioned boarding schools.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland now promises a year-long tour of Indian Country, establishing an oral record, from a Native viewpoint, of a devastating period in history.

As important and historic as the DOI report is, how much confidence should Indian Country put into the federal government’s role in mitigating the trauma?
