Journal of American Indian Education, v35 n3 p49-57 Spr 1996
Rebellion was a common feature of life at federal Indian boarding schools during 1900-40. Letters written by students and family members reveal reasons why students ran away; different forms of rebellion; the strong emotional history of the boarding school experience; the anguish and worry of parents; and the humor, resilience, and resourcefulness of students.
