Wishart, David J.
Journal of Geography, v81 n6 p204-10 Nov-Dec 1982
The years between the Dawes Act of 1887, which imposed allotments in severalty on the American Indians, and 1933, when an advocate of Indian self-determination became Commissioner of Indian Affairs, were marked by a drive to assimilate the Indians. Geography instruction in Indian government schools during this period is discussed. (RM)
