Indian Boarding Schools: Keeping The Culture Alive

Beautiful Resistance

Season 1, Episode 2 of 2

From 1879, and as late as the 1950s, America attempted to destroy Native Culture through the Boarding School system, where the educational dictum was "Kill the Indian to save the man". "Beautiful Resistance" tells the story of contemporary Native artists and their courageous efforts to keep their culture alive by communicating their stories, myths and evolving emotions and lifestyles through their art.
