160. St. Paul’s Indian Mission

Native children were sent to this boarding school which was run by a so-called Christian organization until 1975. Then the management was taken over by representatives from the Native community and the conditions improved a lot.

At least one of the employees had fun on the expense of the children. Father Francis would come to the little girls’ dorm with candy in his pockets. In exchange his hands would go to forbidden places traumatizing these girls forever.

Others enjoyed the corporal punishment God told them to inflict on the children so they could be civilized because they were heathens, pagans, savages, and the devil’s spawn.

It certainly didn’t sound like a fun place to be before 1975. I have no knowledge of how things improved, but I hope that it was a lot.

About udstationeredebetina

Jeg er en unge kvinde med en fortid. For nogle år siden ville min far arbejde i USA. Min ene blog blev lavet i den periode. Senere bestod jeg gymnasiet uden at have planer for hvad skulle bruge uddannelsen til, men min mor insisterede fordi jeg med hvilken som helst anden uddannelse ikke ville kunne få forsikringserstatning, der vil kunne dække mig rimeligt. Så nu arbejder jeg i en butik indtil jeg ved hvad jeg vil bruge mit liv på.
