Look at this contrast and think about it.

The picture on the left shows Tom Torlino, Navajo, in 1882, before going to Carlisle Indian School, Pennsylvania.
The Picture on the right shows "the cuthair", Tom Torlino, in 1884 when he returned to New Mexico.

Up through the 1930's, American Indian children were removed from their families, by force, to go to this institution.
