After Forest Grove

The Forest Grove Indian Training School moved to a site north of Salem in 1885. In its new location, the school was first renamed the "Salem Indian Training School," and by 1900, was renamed again as "Chemawa Indian School." It still exists today under that name, though its aims have changed dramatically since then. Today, Chemawa encourages Native students to study their ancestral histories, languages and cultures.
