The Indian School on Magnolia Avenue: Voices and Images from Sherman Institute

Product Description: In 1902, the federal government opened Sherman Institute in Riverside, California, to transform American Indian students into productive farmers, carpenters, homemakers, nurses, cooks, and seamstresses. Contributors to The Indian School on Magnolia Avenue have drawn on documents held at the Sherman Indian Museum to explore topics such as the building of Sherman, the school's Mission architecture, the nursing program, the Special Five-Year Diné (Navajo) Program, the Sherman cemetery, and a photo essay depicting life at the school.
