I haven't been here in years, everything looks so different so many kids died here.
Yes really, indian children died on these ground, this base used to be a school known for its negligence and past abuses.
WE WANT OUR CHILDREN BACK !!!
Who are these people, let's go to the barracks.
Hello kids, today we are going to learn about a school before the barracks were made and what happen.
"Nearly 200 children died and are buried at the former Carlisle Indian School. Now the Rosebud Sioux want to reclaim their ancestors."
Nearly 200 children are buried in the indian cemetery because of this school.
"The school is known for its past abuses and negligence, including the deaths of hundreds of its students."
Hey, who are all those people outside ?
That is the Rosebud Sioux, their here because they want some of their tribe members to be reburied at the reservation.
"They want the remains of the boys and girls who were taken from their American Indian families in the West, spirited a thousand miles to the East, and, when they died not long after arrival, were buried here in the fertile Pennsylvania soil."
Back then there were boarding schools that used to try to take the indian culture from children.
"Nearly 200 children are buried here in the Indian cemetery. "
"Now the Rosebud Sioux seek to have at least 10 tribe members brought back to the reservation, where they can be reburied after appropriate native prayers and services."
"But from 1879 to 1918, the town was home to the Carlisle Indian Industrial School, the flagship of a fleet of federally funded,3 off-reservation boarding schools. It immersed4 native children in the dominant white culture, seeking to cleanse their "savage nature" by erasing their names, language, dress, customs, religions, and family ties."
