(013) Indian School
Excerpt from page 10 of "B.C.'s Inland Empire" by Erskine Burnett associated with this image: Just beyond the city on the north bank of the river stands the Indian Industrial School. The inscription over the main entrance to this fine brick structure reads, - ﾖKamloops Indian Industrial School, A.D. 1923:. Here the young Indian is instructed in the arts of the white man. Many of them are the descendants of the first sojourners in the Shuswap Valley who arrived here many centuries before the first Europeans crossed the Atlantic.
