"Burich’s exhaustive history significantly contributes to the history of settler colonial schooling by documenting a distinctively different kind of Indian School: non-federal, state run, horrifically committed to the idea of the ‘irredeemable’ Indian child."—K. Tsianina Lomawaima, professor of Indigenous education, School of Social Transformation, Arizona State University

"Burich’s book fills a glaring gap in the fields of Indian education and Haudenosaunee history. It is accessible for undergraduate students and will add significantly to classroom explorations of Indian education by including state-mandated education in discussions that usually revolve around the Carlisle Industrial School and the federal system."—Holly Rine, associate professor of history, Le Moyne College

"Written by an historian who knows the craft of telling a good story, Burich’s book offers a new interpretative angle to the growing literature on Indian boarding school studies, and makes a wonderful contribution to the history of American Indian education."—Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert, associate professor of history, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
