505 0  "An overwhelming majority of the Indians are poor, even 
       extremely poor" -- "Things fall apart" -- Conceived in 
       hope, born of despair -- "Crippled, defective, and Indian 
       children" -- "Up to this day, I ain't nothing" -- "No 
       place to go" -- "Everyone has forgotten me though I'm 
       gonna die." 
520    "The story of the Thomas Indian School is the story of the
       Iroquois people and the suffering and despair of the 
       children who found themselves trapped in an institution 
       from which there was little chance for escape. Although 
       the school began as a refuge for children, it also served 
       as a mechanism for "civilizing" and converting native 
       children to Christianity. As the school's population 
       swelled and financial support dried up, the founders were 
       forced to turn the school over to the state of New York. 
       Under the State Board of Charities, children were 
       subjected to prejudice, poor treatment, and long-term 
       institutionalization, resulting in alienation from their 
       families and cultures. In this harrowing yet essential 
       book, Burich offers new and important insights into the 
       role and nature of boarding schools and their destructive 
       effect on generations of indigenous populations."--Back
