NATIVE AMERICAN LEADERS

In the interview series Meet Native America, the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian invites tribal leaders, cultural figures, and other interesting and accomplished Native individuals to introduce themselves and say a little about their lives and work. Together, their responses illustrate the diversity of the indigenous communities of the Western Hemisphere, as well as their shared concerns, and offer insights beyond what’s in the news to the ideas and experiences of Native peoples today. —Dennis Zotigh, NMAI

In The White Man's Image

In The White Man's Image is a PBS video about the Native American residential boarding school experience; why it was established and how it affected the lives of Native Americans across the United States.  It is about the first residential boarding school in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.  Seven Navajos were among the early enrollees, including two sons of Manuelito, a famous war chief of the Navajo.  Of the seven, six died at Carlisle, including Manuelito's sons.  One of the young men shown in the video is Tom Torlino, a Navajo.
