Boarding School, Yuma, Arizona
In the "old days", Native American children were put in boarding schools to reculturalize them into white society. As you can tell from their expressions this was not necessarily a happy experience. When I first heard of this practice I was horrified. How could these children be taken from their homes and families? The project was not successful and was terminated.
