Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition Launches Historic Boarding School Digital Archive

The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) recently announced the launch of the National Indian Boarding School Digital Archive (NIBSDA), the first-ever digital archives database on Indian boarding Schools. NIBSDA is a groundbreaking project aimed at preserving and bringing to light the history of the U.S. Indian Boarding School era. Over the last four years, NABS has been dedicated to compiling and digitizing records from Indian boarding schools.  


Indian Boarding Schools hold a complex and often painful legacy in American history. For generations, Native American children were forcibly removed from their families and communities and sent to these schools, where they were subjected to cultural assimilation and abuse. The repercussions of this traumatic chapter continue to reverberate through Native communities to this day.


Through NIBSDA, survivors, families, researchers, educators, tribal leaders, and the general public will have the ability to access information that allows them to gain a better understanding of what happened at Indian boarding schools. This digital repository will include documents, photographs, and oral histories, offering invaluable insights into the experiences of those who attended these institutions and the impact they had and continue to have on Native communities.


"This initiative marks a significant milestone in NABS commitment to truth, healing, and justice," said NABS CEO Deborah Parker (Tulalip Tribes). "The majority of all Indian boarding school records are currently not available to the public, by making these records accessible, we are taking a big step towards honoring the history and strength of Native peoples and building a more just and equitable future."


In August, NABS released its research, identifying 523 Indian boarding schools across the U.S. This is the largest list ever compiled, and they say they know it is going to take years and the support from all of Indian Country to collect records for all of these institutions.


We invite the public to explore this resource and join us in our efforts to acknowledge the past and create a brighter future for generations to come.

The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) is dedicated to advocating for Native peoples impacted by U.S. Indian boarding schools.

I opine that engaging in occasional leisure activities, such as playing games of this nature, can be advantageous since they aid in alleviating tension. However, excessive indulgence in such activities, to the detriment of fulfilling other responsibilities, is unwise. nytimes crossword
