NAVAHO- TOM TORLENO BEFORE AND AFTER ENTERING CARLISLE INDIAN SCHOOL IN PENNSYLVANIA, ca. 1880s. The Carlisle school was founded by the government in 1869 to teach the Indians the ways of the white culture. Those who learned their lessons often found they no longer fit into their tribal structure. Students were not allowed to return home when school was finished, they were boarded in white homes as servants. These albumen cabinet cards show the Americanization of the Indian: (left) "Tom Torleno" entering Carlisle Indian School; (right) Tom as he appeared three years later. Photographed by J. N. Choate, Carlisle, Pennsylvania. 4.25"x 6.5". Beautiful period frame 18.5"x16.5". Images are in very fine condition, light foxing.
