Heather Bruegl, a member of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin, is a graduate of Madonna University in Michigan and holds a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in U.S. History. Inspired by a trip to Wounded Knee, South Dakota, a passion for Native American History was born.

A History of Boarding Schools: In the 1800's assimilation was the government’s policy to work Native Americans into mainstream society. One of the ways was taking Native children from their homes and sending them to boarding schools. "Save the man, Kill the Indian" was the motto that was used by these schools as they stripped Native children of their language, culture and identity.  Learn how the schools operated and what we did to help overcome the abuse.
