National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition
Driven by the mission of leading in the pursuit of understanding and addressing the ongoing impacts of the U.S. Indian Boarding School policy, The National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition (NABS) is a Native-led organization committed to the transformative potential of education, advocacy, and healing initiatives in response to an era characterized by child removal and cultural genocide. NABS will be on-site to preview the use of its boarding school records platform: the National Indian Boarding School Digital Archives (NIBSDA). As an imperative to illuminating boarding school history, NIBSDA was conceptualized to serve as a national authoritative digital repository for boarding school archival collections throughout the United States. Making these records more accessible to boarding school survivors and their descendants in a digital archive is essential to understanding this history and its many impacting consequences on Tribal Nations.
