Examines the origin and development of Indian orphanages, showing how the concept of "orphan"-entirely foreign to traditional native kinship networks-found a place in native culture as tribally supported orphanages became just one of the many profound changes brought by Euro-American contact. The first book to deal exclusively with Indian orphanages.
