Noted Native American writer, artisan, musician, and dancer Warren Petoskey came to understand that his clients often experienced residual effects from the American Indian boarding schools that many were forced to attend. This realization led Warren to found Dawnland Native Ministries in 1998; based near Petoskey, Michigan, this outreach program endeavors "to build bridges of understanding with all peoples regarding the damage done by America's boarding school policies and their effects on the current generations."
