Boarding School Film Series: Lost Ones & Salt Song Trail

The Lost Ones: Long Journey Home

This documentary tells the story of two Lipan Apache children captured along the Texas-Mexico border in 1877 by the U.S. Army 4th Cavalry. The children rode with the soldiers for three years before being taken to the Carlisle Indian School. Ties with their family were completely severed. The documentary reveals how in 2009, Lipan Apache descendants from California, Texas and New Mexico came to Carlisle to offer blessings.

The Salt Song Trail: Bringing Creation Back Together documents a healing ceremony at the Sherman Institute- a former Indian boarding school where Indian children were forcibly taken from their homes and forbidden to practice their traditional cultures.
