Riassunto: Chilocco: Memories of a Native American Boarding School provides a very rare glimpse inside the educational institution that has been closed and completely inaccessible to the public for more than thirty years. Located just south of Arkansas City, on the Oklahoma/Kansas boarder, the doors of the school opened to one hundred Native American students in 1884 under the direction of Major James Haworth and remained open until 1980, a span of nearly one hundred years. During that time, 18,000 students from 126 different Native American tribes attended. This book includes students memories of time spent on the 8,640 acre campus along with over one hundred and thirty historic pictures of Chilocco Indian Agricultural School. The once beautiful and meticulously maintained campus called, "Prairie Light" has fallen victim to the harsh Oklahoma elements since closing and many of the roughly 80 remaining structures are now collapsing. The priceless ruins earned Chilocco a spot on the list of Oklahoma's Most Endangered Historic Places in 2009.
