 SHERMAN INDIAN SCHOOL CEMETERY

This school was founded by the United States Government to assimilate Native Americans into the mainstream society, upon which hundreds of  Native American children were removed from their homes and tribal cultures, sent to these schools to be educated, taught a trade and required to conform to Euro-American society.  Because of Bureau policies, students did not return home for several
years, many of whom died and were buried
in the school cemetery.
