520 2  "Explores why many Native youth in the Indian Student 
       Placement Program adopted a new notion of identity. From 
       1947 to 2000, some 50,000 Native American children left 
       the reservations to live with Mormon foster families. The 
       access to educational opportunities and cross cultural 
       experiences appealed to many Navajo and other Native 
       American families in the post-war years. Some dropped out 
       of the Indian Student Placement Program (ISPP) program, 
       but for others the months spent in LDS families often 
       proved more penetrating than expected. Making Lamanites 
       traces this student experience within contested cultural 
       and institutional landscapes to reveal how and why many of
       these Native youth adopted a new notion of Indianness. The
       ISPP emerged in the mid-twentieth century, championed by 
       Apostle Spencer W. Kimball. The program aligned with the 
       then national preferences to terminate tribal entities and
       assimilate indigenous people. But as the paradigm shifted 
       to self-determination, critics labeled the program as 
       crudely assimilationist. Some ISPP students like Navajo 
       George P. Lee fiercely defended the LDS Church before 
       Native peers and Congress, contending that it empowered 
       Native people and instilled the true Indian identity, 
       while Red Power activists organized protests in Salt Lake 
       City, denouncing LDS colonization. As a new generation of 
       church leaders quietly undercut the Indian programs, many 
       of its former participants felt a sense of confusion and 
       abandonment as Mormon distinction for Native people faded 
       in the late twentieth century"--Provided by publisher.
