More on Carlisle

Another interesting book about football and the Carlisle Indian Industrial School is The Real All Americans by Sally Jenkins. Heartbreaking in some ways (I can't imagine having my kids taken away, or being forced to ignore my cultural heritage) but also a fascinating history of football. I'll have to read Undefeated now!
