Abstract:

The central theme of the essay is a consideration of the factors in the life of Richard Henry Pratt which facilitated his development of philosophy of Indian Education that sought the total integration of the American Indian into the American society, and the implementation of that philosophy in his Superintendency for 25 years of the Carlisle Indian Industrial School at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania. Data were gathered from published literature and unpublished manuscripts, memoirs and personal correspondence. General Pratts major contribution is not in an educational system, which did not survive, but in his role as a champion seeking justice for an oppressed people.
