In 1875, Captain Richard Pratt escorted 72 Indian warriors suspected of murdering white settlers to Fort Marion in Florida, removed their shackles, hired teachers, and made them into what Harriet Beecher Stowe called "docile and eager students." Program follows Capt. Pratt's founding of the Carlisle School in Pennsylvania, and his philosophy of "kill the Indian and save the man" which became the basis of the Indian schools across America. In this film, native Americans tell the story of a humanist experiment gone bad.
