WSD Productions Presents "Remember the Children"
Honoring the missing children of the Rapid City Indian Boarding School
Our Children Will Not Be Forgotten…
“There were over 400 US government funded and often church run, Indian Boarding Schools. Thousands of children died of abuse and neglect at these schools, most of them left in unmarked graves and forgotten.
