Fort Lewis College understands this page does not represent our institution’s history in a way that’s fully inclusive of our Native American community on campus and the families directly affected by Indian boarding schools. A council of campus and community advisors will be recommending a course of action for the website to President Stritikus to better recognize the past, understand more fully how it’s lived today, and look to the future with more intention around these depictions.
