Before Dartmouth was an Ivy League school, it was an Indian school. Dedicated to educating Indians in the region, its mission was to aid Indians in assimilating into 18th century life. Did the college accomplish its goal? Colin Calloway’s recent book, The Indian History of an American Institution: Native Americans and Dartmouth, explores that question and the college’s relationship with Native Americans now.
