Storyline

In 1875, Captain Richard Pratt escorted 72 Indian warriors suspected of murdering white settlers to Fort Marion in St. Augustine, Florida. Once there, Pratt began an ambitious experiment which involved teaching the Indians to read and write, English, putting them in uniforms and drilling them like soldiers. "Kill the Indian and the save the man," was Pratt's motto. A film about the experiment by Richard Pratt to change acculturate Native Americans into mainstream, white culture with the creation of the Carlise School for Indians in 1879. Pratt's school, and others like it, all begun in the most noble of humanistic intentions lasted well into the late 1930s. The schools were an outgrowth of the last westward expansion in the 1880s.
