NB. It says by schools on reservations and in villages, not just on reservations and in villages.

That is correct. Not only on reservations. Sorry for the cynicism, but it roils my native American blood
to have had our children forcibly Christianized and "civilized" and Americanized. And I am only part
Native American. Forcibly taking whole tribes to a river and "baptizing' them without any idea of what
was going on (cf movie: "Mission"). Don't want to start a fight here, just expressing an opinion.
