A Lawrence, Kansas learning institution for post-high school education of United States Indian Tribe members. The school was formed as an industrial training facility in 1884, and originally was a boarding school. Curriculum emphasis was on Indians becoming constructive members of white society. Named for Dudley Haskell, U.S. Congressman from Kansas, it began offering college level classes in 1927, and in 1970 became exclusively a college level school, which continues into the 21st Century. With 12 historic buildings, it became a National Historic Landmark in 1961. Graduate Indian artists include Allan Houser, Fred Beaver, William Standing and Doc Nevaquaya.
