SITES OF CULTURAL SIGNIFICANCE
The following photos show two current sites of historic and cultural significance and importance to the Douglas Indian Association.
BIA Native School in Douglas
The Tribe lobbied the BIA for a safe school for its children resulting in Mayflower School. When vacated, the Tribe was to become its owners. Instead, it was transferred to the City of Douglas following the 1962 destruction of the Douglas Indian village, and is now operated as a Montessori preschool.
This Tribal cemetery in downtown Douglas represents only a small portion of its burial grounds in that area. Other Tribal graves remain underneath Douglas Highway and Gastineau School and extend to parts of surrounding residential areas.
