QUIET! The Stewart Indian School (1890-1980) was a Native American School located southeast of Carson City, Nevada. The school was a part of the Native American boarding schools project, infamous for removing children from their families, forbidding the speaking of native languages, sexual abuse, and other forms of harsh treatment. Most of the 63 buildings still stand and appear on the National Register of Historic Places.
