Eddie Benton-Banai of the Ojibwas describes his first experience at a Bureau of Indian Affairs boarding school:

We'd been riding on a school bus the better part of that day, ... and we arrived ... around midnight. I thought for sure they would feed us - but they didn't do that.... [T]he first stop was this little room ... [where] everybody got their hair lopped off.... [T]here on the floor lay my pretty eagle plume and the braids that my mother had so carefully fixed and tied....

Eddie Benton-Banai, Grand Chief of the Three Fires Society, explained that a spiritual renaissance was taking place among the Native American aimed at reviving the original covenant with the Creator and "Mother Earth."
