An untold number of Native and Indigenous children were stolen from us, sent to hundreds of boarding schools throughout the US and Canada in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Many of these children never returned home. Our Remembering the Children Wool Blanket (Wakȟáŋyeža Wičhákiksuyapi) honors their experiences and memories: we will not forget you.
This authentic Native wool blanket is designed by Travis Harden (Oohenumpa Lakota and Winnebago Ho Chunk) in collaboration with the volunteers, family members, descendants, matriarchs, and elders of the Rapid City Indian Boarding School Lands Project in South Dakota. It reflects the project’s commitment to the Native community’s children past and present, and to honoring the healing, strength, resiliency, hopes, and dreams of future generations impacted by the residential school system.
