During the early 1900s, many Native American children were taken from their homes and lands by the U. S. government and sent to government-run residential boarding schools in order to “Americanize” them.  This lecture aims to raise awareness of this haunting and painful issue in American history, whose impact continues to affect future generations. The documentary Unseen Tears: The Impact of Native American Residential Boarding Schools in Western New York by filmmaker Ron Douglas will be shown. Michael Martin, interviewed in the film, will be on-hand for discussion.

The three-lecture series price is $25/Friends of Ganondagan members. Individual lecture prices are: $10/Friends of Ganondagan members, $15/non-members, and $5/students with ID. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit or call (585) 742-1690. Tickets also may be purchased at the door.
