Detroit Today [NPR]: “National Investigation of Native American Boarding Schools Hits Home in Michigan” — Turtle Talk

Canada isn’t the only one with some explaining to do. Click on the above link to take you to the latest news on upcoming investigation on ones in MI. As a matter of fact, in the “Lost in Michigan” book I have, one of the places listed is the “Mount Pleasant Indian Industrial Boarding School,” located on South Crawford Road near West Pickard Road. Ironically the article says it is located on tribal property where no trespassing is allowed, yet later in the article says it was designated as a State Historical Landmark in 1986. Things that make you go hm?

    Just like in Canada, very sadly not surprising, but still incredibly painful.
