“'Stringing Rosaries' is a stunning recitation of the experiences of survivors of Indian boarding schools, a result of the disastrous and misguided boarding school policy adopted and implemented by the federal government in the early 1880s. Lajimodiere lays bare the pain and unresolved trauma of those who were subjected to the schools and provides the basis for understanding the source of that trauma from one generation to the next.” Donald Wharton, Sr., Attorney, Native American Rights Fund
