NARF Staff Attorney Don Wharton presents on NARF’s work with the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition at United South and Eastern Tribes meeting

Earlier this week, NARF Staff Attorney Don Wharton presented on behalf of the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition to the Social Services Committee of the United South and Eastern Tribes at their 2014 semi-annual meeting in Bar Harbor, Maine.  The presentation concerned the history and purpose of the boarding school policy of the last two centuries and its continuing devastating impacts on Indian Country.  The mission of the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition is to secure healing for the victims of the policy including surviving individuals of boarding school abuse, families, communities, and tribes throughout Indian Country.
