Santa Fe Indian School
Perhaps no other educational institution has played a more prominent role in the development of New Mexico's Indian people as the Santa Fe Indian School. First established in 1890 as a venue to assimilate Indians into mainstream American culture, the Santa Fe Indian School has evolved significantly in its focus; to value Native culture within the larger non-Indian society. Throughout the years many notable Indian artists and scholars have been a product of the school. Today, it remains an important and thriving school for Indian students and tribal communities.
