    Some Things Are Not Forgotten: A Pawnee Family Remembers

    The Blaine family were among the Pawnees forcibly removed to Indian Territory in 1874-75. By the early twentieth century, disease and starvation had wiped out nearly three-quarters of the reservation’s population. Government boarding schools refused to teach Pawnee customs and language, and many Pawnees found themselves without a community when their promised land was allotted to individuals and the rest sold as “surplus” to white settlers.
