The great escape from the Indian mission school
My friend Pete Cummings and I had never seen any movies about great escapes so we had no prior knowledge about how to approach such an event.
We were sitting side-by-side on the swings in the Little Boy’s Playgrounds when the idea occurred to us. I told Pete that I was going to run away from the Holy Rosary Indian Mission Boarding School and I asked him to join me. Our parent’s had moved to Rapid City from the Pine Ridge Reservation to find jobs so we both had families there.
