TitleAll Indian Trails Lead to Lawrence, October 27 to 30, American Identity and the Dedication of Haskell Institute's Football Stadium
AbstractHaskell Indian Institute (now Haskell Indian Nations University), located in Lawrence, Kansas, opened in 1884 and its curriculum resembled that of Carlisle Institute, an Indian training school located in Pennsylvania. "Both schools emphasized industrial training, Christian indoctrination, and a strict eschewing of Native American customs, languages, and traditions."

The article gives some of the history of Haskell, but the focus of the article is the dedication and opening of the new football stadium in the fall of 1926. "The stadium and memorial arch provided tangible representations of Haskell student and alumni patriotism. The stadium structure proved to be an impressive accomplishment, standing as the first lighted stadium in the Midwest and the third-largest stadium in the state." The struggle between Indian customs and culture and that of the United States/white people is explored concerning this event.
