Description

This slide-illustrated talk by Middlebury College's Director of Ethnic Studies Susan Burch, a Colorado College alumna, examines the treatment of Native Americans in penal, medical, and disability institutions in the early twentieth century.  Burch, a noted disability historian, here explores the implications of a "dislocated" Native history for American identity in general.
