In the beginning of the novel we are introduced to our main character, Ned (Little Boy) Begay. Ned begins his story by describing the day his family sent him away to an Indian Boarding School. Ned had no idea what to expect at this strange new place.
Today, we are going to spend a little time learning the reason behind these Boarding Schools and what the conditions in these schools were like.
Watch the video below and then reflect on how Ned was treated at his boarding school.
