Teach Them to Till the Soil: An Experiment with Indian Farms, 1850-1862
Beeton, Beverly
American Indian Quarterly, 3, 4, 299-320, W 77-78
The Utah Superintendency of Indian Affairs experimented with a system of Indian farms to feed the Indians of the territory and to provide a suitable environment for their acculturation. While the experiment served to control and pacify some of the Indians, it did not convert them to the sedentary life of cultivators of the soil. (NQ)
