The Carlisle Indian School (1879–1918) was an audacious educational experiment. Lieutenant Richard Henry Pratt, the school’s founder and first superintendent, persuaded the federal government that training Native children to accept the white man’s ways and values would be more efficient than fighting deadly battles. The result was that the last Indian war would be waged against Native children in the classroom. More than 8,500 children from virtually every Native nation in the United States were taken from their homes and transported to Pennsylvania. Carlisle provided a blueprint for the federal Indian school system that was established across the United States and also served as a model for many residential schools in Canada. The Carlisle experiment initiated patterns of dislocation and rupture far deeper and more profound and enduring than its founder and supporters ever grasped. Carlisle Indian Industrial School offers varied perspectives on the school by interweaving the voices of students’ descendants, poets, and activists with cutting-edge research by Native and non-Native scholars. These contributions reveal the continuing impact and vitality of historical and collective memory, as well as the complex and enduring legacies of a school that still affects the lives of many Native Americans.

Established by an act of Congress in 1879, the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in central Pennsylvania was conceived as a paramilitary residential boarding school that would solve the then-pressing Indian Question by forcibly assimilating and Americanizing Native American youth. In this work, Mauro analyzes the visual imagery produced at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School as a specific instance of the aesthetics of Americanization at work.

This thesis addresses a major gap in scholarship addressing Native American off-reservation boarding schools in the United States, which to date has focused primarily on cultural loss and student experiences. Detailing off-reservation boarding schools' institutional attacks on students' language, family relations, and culture is without a doubt critical, but this thesis explores a different kind of destruction. It documents how institutionalized conditions systematically imposed by United States government employees killed large numbers of Native American students at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School between 1879 and 1918. Ancillary to disease, substandard living conditions, overcrowding, compulsory labor, physical abuse, malnourishment and dietary insufficiencies, and psychological trauma compromised the students' immune systems leaving them vulnerable to pathogens, while mitigating against recovery from illness. The result--widespread epidemics and death--warrants a thorough investigation. Using archival materials, government reports, newspapers, and personal accounts, this thesis quantifies Carlisle's demographic impact on its students, revealing that the school was far more lethal than previously known. Enrollment, desertion, sickness, and mortality figures indicate that Carlisle exhibited extremely high death rates in comparison with other comparable demographic units. More than five hundred students died at Carlisle or shortly after leaving the school. These deaths reflect dangerous conditions consciously maintained by administrators for decades.
