About this interview

Dr. Mann's book draws on oral histories, interviews, and tribal records to document the years during which Cheyenne and Arapaho children were subject to a constantly changing government assimilation policy. The book encapsulates an important period of Oklahoma history, as well as national history. This is not merely a history of buildings, classrooms and policies, but is also a story of individuals, families and tribes.

Dr. Mann is the emeritus president of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal College. She is also professor Emeritus in Native American Studies at Montana State University. She earned her doctorate from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque and holds a master's degree from Oklahoma State University.
