Author

From our pages (Nov–Dec/11): "The United States Indian Service (now the Bureau of Indian Affairs), created in 1824, was responsible for managing trust obligations to American Indians, but it also sought to integrate them into US social and political systems. Cathleen Cahill studies the agency during the height of its assimilation efforts, which attempted to use employees as surrogate parents to make Native Americans comfortable with the US government."
