The Heard Museum and the History of Indian School

with one comment

Carlisle Indian School student body, March 1892.
Recently I visited the Heard Museum in Phoenix Arizona and saw the exhibit

Remembering Our Indian School Days: The Boarding School Experience”

an exhibit that pulls at your heart.
This is a righteous part of American History and the belief that we could decide what is best for others.

I located a NY Times Article, ironnically dated July 5th, 1896, which about the Phoenix Indian School. In reading it you see that “Spin” is not a new invention.

The original Phoenix Indian School Campus is not far from the Heard. The school is no longer functioning and is undergoing renovations and one day I guess it will become a museum.

The photo on the right has me ask the question, when you are forced to be other then who you are, what happens to your creativity?

  1. When you are forced to be other than who you are, creativity is stifled. I think it gets locked up and set aside, until it eventually disappears. I think creativity comes from honesty and truth.
