SAGINAW (WJRT) -
(06/11/14) - It's long been closed, but the Mount Pleasant Indian Industrial Boarding School still holds haunting memories.
Until the mid-1930's, many Indian children who went there were abused and stripped of their culture.
It was even worse for some - at least 174 undocumented deaths took place at the school.
Last week, the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe started the healing by honoring those lost.
The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe is trying to get the school listed on the National Register of Historic Places. That would help ongoing efforts to save the building and preserve the memory of the students who went there.
