In the White Man's Image

Type of Material: 
Documentary film


Alexandria, Va. : PBS Video, c1991. 58 mins. A look at the education of a certain group of American Indians in the Carlisle School for Indian Students founded by Richard Pratt in the early part of the 20th century as an attempt to change their heritage and values. Includes the story of Cheyenne warriors who were exiled to St. Augustine, Florida as the first group of Indians to be schooled under Mr. Pratt's direction. 'To save the man, you must first kill the Indian' so he changed their outward appearance and kept them from their families. A very powerful video on forced assimilation. Very well done.
