In the 1860s, the U.S. government took Native American kids from their families and placed them in "cultural assimilation" boarding schools designed to make them "whiter." The schools were incredibly abusive; thousands of kids died in them, and these kids were then buried in unmarked graves. Today, erasure continues as oil and gas companies attempt to separate Native Americans from their tribal homelands.
