The California Indian Education (CALIE) organization recently launched a new website on American Indian boarding schools. The website is managed by Ernie C. Salgado, Jr., of the Soboba Indian Reservation. Jon Allan Reyhner, Professor of Education at Northern Arizona University, has written the Forward for the web page. In addition to giving a history of Indian boarding schools, Reyhner has provided brief commentaries on numerous books and authors of Indian boarding school studies. If you have a minute, be sure to make your way over to the CALIE website. This is a great resource for those interested in the American Indian boarding school experience.

Matt! Thanks for pointing to this site. I was writing about the Mission Schools in California a few days ago and will add this link to that webpage.
Sounds great, Debbie! Thanks for passing along the word.
One of the first impressions of this new CALIE website is the excellent visual presentation of many images with detailed text comments. Links and resources seem easy to navigate. A good resource.
I agree, Phil. It is a user friendly website. Lots of photographs and helpful links.
