Boarding school survivors share traumas at Road to Healing event in Bozeman

Adeline Fox, now 77, still remembers her grandpa dropping her off at the school bus to go to boarding school at St. Labre Indian Mission Boarding School in Ashland. He told her not to speak their Cheyenne language at the school, to speak only English, and he warned her that her hair was going to be cut. Fox shared her story with Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland in Bozeman during the twelfth and final stop on Haaland’s nationwide “Road to Healing” tour.
