What People are Saying About This

Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert

Gram offers a highly engaging account of Pueblo Indian students and their experiences at the Albuquerque and Santa Fe Indian schools. His book revealsan intense power dynamic between parents, school officials, the Catholic church, and the students themselves. No other single scholarly work interrogates the ways Pueblo students and their tribal communities experienced these institutions.

David Wallace Adams

The Pueblo Indians of New Mexico were more than passive victims in the face of federal efforts to dispossess their children of their cultural identities. With issues of power, culture, and agency at its very center, Education at the Edge of Empire constitutes an important contribution to the literature on Indian boarding schools.
