Spring Letters From the Reservation
Bosque Redondo Memorial at Fort Sumner

Spring Letters from the Reservation is a collection of archival letters and oral histories from Fort Sumner Historic Site that describes the mindset of the United States Government towards Tribal polices in the American Southwest and the daily tribulations experienced by the Diné (Navajo) and the Ndé (Mescalero Apache) in the months of March through May (1863-1868) while held captive on the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation.  These spring letters and oral histories, read in chronological order by people from around the United States, reveals a micro-history of the failed experiment that was Fort Sumner and a moment in history when humanity was lost.
