InSight - Oregon Mission Indian Manual Labor School

Show Details

InSight gets answers from those digging into the past at an archeology project at Willamette Heritage Center. Guests Kimberli Fitzgerald, City of Salem archeologist, and Chris Bailey, Grande Ronde Cultural Resources Specialist explain what is discovered in layers of soil is physical evidence of what actually occurred at the Jason Lee Parsonage and Willamette University project sites and what that tells them about life when Native Americans were settled here and life after European-American settlers arrived. It’s a unique window in time since Rev. Lee and the Methodists were only there from 1841 to 1844 but during the time the federal government gave money to Christian missionaries and benevolent societies to fund Indian Boarding Schools designed to culturally assimilate the children.
