Yesterday’s National Day of Remembrance for U.S. Indian Boarding Schools came with two developments.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Sharice Davids, and Rep. Tom Cole reintroduced a bipartisan bill to establish a Truth and Healing Commission on Indian Boarding School Policies. The bill text is available here.
In addition, Interior issued a press release announcing that it would hold tribal consultations on the Indian Boarding School Initiative. The consultations will take place on November 2, 16, and 18, and details are available here.
