Truth & Healing at Red Cloud

From its founding in 1888 until 1980, Red Cloud was an Indian boarding school—one of over 350 institutions established in the nineteenth century created to eliminate Indigenous cultures, languages, and spiritual traditions through the assimilation of Native children. To address the tragic injustices in our past, Red Cloud graduate Makȟa Black Elk ‘05, who has served as an educator and leader on campus for the past seven years, has been appointed to facilitate Red Cloud's Truth and Healing process in the months and years ahead.
