Plateau Sciences Society 1/15/17 - Preserve Historical Ft. Wingate dorms & school

January 18, 2017

On January 15, 2017, the Plateau Sciences Society met with members of the community to discuss options for preserving historical Fort Wingate's dorms and school buildings, where a number of milestones took place, including the swearing in of Navajo Code Talkers during World War II.  There were notorious incidents, too, associated with the BIA's use of the buildings as one of the early "Indian" schools.  Martin Link led the discussion.
