Indian School Baseball Team Real Photo Postcards - circa 1914
Not dated, but from an album of cards in the from a single
traveler assembled over the 1910 - 1918 period, these cards represent
a document of the efforts of our Federal Government to assimilate
American Indian children into mainstream culture. The Phoenix
Industrial Indian School and the Sherman Institute were examples
of the Indian Boarding Schools which were important to these initiatives.
The baseball teams pictured here were noted for their skills.
