Nancy Bellzona's Picture Book
Chilocco - Chilocco Students


Chilocco StudentsThese were upper and lower class men of The Chilocco Indian School just after the turn of the century. The difference in education and polish can be seen between the younger boys in the first row and the young men standing in the back row.

Instructors such as this man came from fine families. They were well educated and they were good people. There was a supreme dedication to their work of educating the Native Americans.

The teachers who worked here were as homesick as their students and there were strong ties between the children and their instructors. The people working with the children made them their entire focal point. The result was, of course, that students who graduated from the school had fine educations. Today, many parts of society hold positions filled with Chilocco students. There are psychiatrists, doctors, lawyers, teachers, and trades of beauticians. There are dry cleaners, printers, and nurses. Chilocco graduates are owners of businesses such as sheet metal, day care, rest homes, seamstresses, dress designers and many others.

The boy standing second from the right looks like Edward Richard Pensoneau, brother to Velma Louise Pensoneau Jones and son of Elizabeth Little Cook, Pensoneau, Hernandez. This photograph was saved by Elizabeth, which says it could have been her son. The picture resembles David Pensoneau, son of Edward.
