"Right in the Midst of My Own People": Native American Women and the Field Matron Program.
Emmerich, Lisa E.
American Indian Quarterly, v15 n2 p201-16 Spr 1991
From 1895 to 1905, assimilated Native American women played an active role in the Office of Indian Affairs' field matron program, designed to teach reservation Indian women domestic skills and Victorian standards of womanhood. Native matrons decreased after 1905 because of official fears about their commitment to assimilation policies. (SV)
