Example text

This specific religious dimension is critical, not only as a source of exclusion but, as we shall see, as a force for assimilation. The exclusionary and assimilationist tendencies of the Progressive Era can only be understood in light of the historical context within which they grew. Specifically, they were fuelled by deep cultural anxieties in Protestant America about relations with ‘other’ groups of people, exacerbated by increases in immigration from eastern and southern – as opposed to northern – Europe and the impact of the First World War.

What Putnam describes, in uniformly positive terms, as the Progressive Era’s ‘impulse to educate and 30 Diverse Communities assimilate’ from ‘kindergarten to high school’ needs to be examined in light of the experience of the residential or boarding school system for ‘Indians’ (Putnam, 2000, pp. 393 & 395). The education of indigenous Americans shared the same driving force as much of the social capital literature: to foster ‘civic virtue’, to ‘morally uplift’ and to build ‘civilization’ through the progressive vehicle of education.

Huff, 1997, p. 2) During the Progressive Era, a determined effort was made by the US government to assimilate the Native Americans in the same kind of residential schooling system that had been introduced in Canada (Diner, 1998, p. 117). Throughout the Progressive Era, US officials attempted to assimilate the Indians by . . establishing schools to educate young Indians as Americans, . . by forcibly suppressing Indian culture. The schools prohibited Indian dress, songs, dances, rituals and the use of Indian languages.
