PaintingThis year marks the 100-year anniversary of the closing of Carlisle Industrial Indian School—the first federal Indian boarding school in the U.S.

Join us within the traditional homelands of the Haudenosaunee and Susquehannock peoples as we come together from Tribal Nations all over Indian Country for a national discussion on boarding school truth, justice, and healing.

We hope to see boarding school survivors and descendants, tribal leaders, and anyone working on understanding and addressing the impacts of boarding school trauma in Indian Country at the conference in Carlisle this fall!
