Also known as the Stewart Indian School, the curriculum was aimed at teaching Native Americans practical job skills such as housekeeping for the girls, or sewing, as in the photo, taken in 1918. Girls also worked in the laundry. Boys were taught printing and farming.
Life at the Indian School
was regimented and students wore uniforms. But they also had time
to play. These boys were using the teeter-totters
at the school, and probably playing in the mud puddles, too.
