Mr. Cooper talked about his book Indian School: Teaching the White Man’s Way, published

by Clarion Books. The book describes the experiences of the first Sioux Indians sent

to the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania in 1879. Carlisle was the first institution

opened by the federal government for the education of Native American children. The school

forced the children to abandon their native culture and language in favor of the predominant

American culture. He responded to questions from middle school children. close
