The Outing System

Photos: 

“One characteristic of the Indian School is the Outing System, whereby the students are placed in well chosen homes for a period of four months each year. The girls are engaged as house girls or domestics, and the boys are placed on farms and in shops to be taught farming and the trades.” 

A vital component to the vocational training each student received was the outing provided by the school. Each student was placed in a home for four months each year and received real job experience in whatever their vocational training was. This enabled them to find jobs outside of the reservation when they were finished with their education. It is important to note the names present on the ledger. To complete the assimilation process, each student went out into the world with the white name they had been given upon arrival, symbolizing the start of a life in white society and the cutting of ties between the student and their ancestry and culture.
