Carlisle Indian Industrial School

25.00

Founded in 1879, the brutally oppressive Carlisle School’s official mission was to “civilize” Native American children, but its unofficial motto was “Kill the Indian, Save the Man.” The school emphasized athletics and fielded the most heralded Native American basketball team of the era. In his book Basketball: Its Origins and Development, the ever-observant Dr. Naismith noted that the team’s “ability to move quickly and their art of deception overcome the disadvantage of their height.” There were also several Native American barnstorming teams, such as the Sioux Travelers-Warriors, which featured South Dakota all-state players Chub Bear and Suitcase Little, who were tastefully promoted with posters declaring, “Indians on the war path . . . after every club’s scalp.”

Originally published in FreeDarko Presents: The Undisputed Guide to Pro Basketball History.Paper size: 13" x 10" Archival UltraChrome print on fine art paper. Open edition, signed by the artist. Please allow two to three weeks for delivery
