Escape from Albuquerque: An Apache Memorate.
Greenfeld, Philip J.
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v25 n3 p47-71 2001
Clarence Hawkins, a White Mountain Apache, escaped from the Albuquerque Indian School around 1920. His 300-mile trip home, made with two other boys, exemplifies the reaction of many Indian youths to the American government's plans for cultural assimilation. The tale is told in the form of traditional Apache narrative. (TD)
