Stewart Indian School Trail

Stewart Indian School Trail Information

The Stewart Indian School Trail is a self-guided cell phone walking tour of the former Stewart Indian School in Carson City, Nevada. This historic school was the only non-reservation Indian boarding school in Nevada, operating from 1890 to 1980 with a federal mandate to educate American Indian children throughout the West. The intent of the Indian boarding school was to educate and assimilate American Indian children so they could take their place in society and away from their culture and traditions. The Trail includes 20 audio recordings of alumni and former employees of the school who tell their stories and share the treasures of this largely unknown and seldom taught history with visitors of today.
