Summer Letters From the Reservation 2022
Bosque Redondo Memorial at Fort Sumner

Summer 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 June through August (1863-1868) while held captive on the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation. These summer 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.
