To the Editor,
Hello! Sorry to bother, but I have a question so I thought I’d reach out to you, as I’m unsure who to contact otherwise.
I live in Indiana. There is an old building nearby that once served as an “Indian Normal School” back when the government was forcibly assimilating Native Americans. It functioned from 1888-1896. Anyway, Katharine Drexel was the initial sponsor and provided most of its funding.
My question is, the fight at the Drexel Mission the day after Wounded Knee. Do you know if that mission was associated w/Katharine Drexel as well? I assume it was, but I am unable to find an answer.
Thank you for your time and for any help you may provide!
Jasper County Indiana
