Join the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary for a special presentation at the Steele Indian School Visitor Center with Curator Patty Talahongva about “The Impact of the Phoenix Indian Industrial School through its 99 Year History” on November 7 at 6:30 p.m.
The Phoenix Indian Industrial School opened in 1891 to assimilate American Indian children into European American society. Though it was called a school, it was meant to create a workforce which could speak English and work as cheap labor in the cities. The history of the school, the changes it had on American Indian tribal nations and the impact the students had on the city of Phoenix and the state of Arizona will be covered in this presentation. The recent renovation of the former grammar school by the partners, Native American Connections and the Phoenix Indian School, will also be presented and is the host site for this meeting.
This event is free and open to the public, made possible by the Pueblo Grande Museum Auxiliary. Lectures are held the first Wednesday of each month, October through June from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Donations are welcome.
