Abstract

They learned something of our American way of life and enjoyed it enough to want to share in it. They knew that to be able to compete with others they would have to get an education and be able to speak English. When these veterans and defense workers returned to the reservation after the war, they started a movement to get the children into school. This movement grew until 91 percent of all school age children were in school in 1957 compared with 32 percent in 1945 when the movement started.
