Harvard University – an "Indian college"

Harvard reports that a group of American Indian leaders joined with experienced and budding archaeologists on Wednesday (Sept. 26) to begin the search for the physical proof of Harvard’s Indian College roots.

Buried somewhere under Harvard Yard lies the remnants of both the Old College and the Indian College, which more than 350 years ago combined to make up Harvard.  For 10 years, beginning in 1655, Harvard’s fourth building and first brick structure housed five students from New England tribes who studied side by side with English students.
