Elizabeth Rule, Ph.D., assistant director, AT&T CIPP, @ERuleDC interview with @Newsy on Indian boarding school policy and contemporary connections to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons.

  • Dr. Elizabeth Rule says the idea of "American-izing" natives began in the 1800's. “There were places where Native American children were forcibly or coercively institutionalized, but there were other locations where some...children were able to stay home.”
  • “Quite infamously, the phrase, “Kill the Indian, save the man,” was said by General Richard Henry Pratt, the founder of the Carlisle Indian School, the first Native American boarding school of its kind,” Rule said.
