In the wake of an extensive federal probe into numerous Indigenous Boarding Schools, Red Cloud Indian School emerges as the center of America’s struggle to confront its dark past. However, opinions on the school’s impact on Pine Ridge Reservation, home to the Oglala Lakota tribe, are split. Hosted by Crystal Echo Hawk (Pawnee) and Lashay Wesley (Choctaw), American Genocide documents this true crime narrative, exploring the lasting trauma inflicted by Native American boarding schools and the potential for achieving truth, healing, and reconciliation. The first episode follows two Indigenous investigators examining disconcerting events surrounding a former Catholic Indian boarding school on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation before a search for mass graves.
