Most tribes that once were native to Pennsylvania ended up on Indian

reservations in Oklahoma. MEADOWCROFT The archaeological site shows earliest known ROCKSHELTERS evidence of human presence in Pennsylvania. The artifacts from the site show the area may have been continually inhabited for over 19,000 years, since Paleo-Indian times. The rockshelter is a natural formation beneath an overhanging cliff sandstone. Native Americans left the site during the Revolutionary War. It was not re-discovered until 1955. From 1879 to 1918 the Carlisle community hosted an experiment designed to transform more than 10,000 Native American Indian children from their so-called "savage" ways into "civilized" lifestyles.

They came from all over the country. The children were forced to change their name to an English name which had little meaning for them. They were required to learn English and could not use their native language. The children wore uniforms, but they had been accustomed to their native attire. The boys had to cut their long braids.
