The Carlisle Indian Industrial School was established in Carlisle, Pennsylvania in 1879. It was the first official effort at establishing boarding schools which removed Native American children from their homes and other familiar surroundings in order to teach them English and to train them away from their culture.

A 1911 census of Carlisle Indian School has been microfilmed as the National Archives Microcopy M585 and is available at the National Archives and many of its branches and at Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah (Family History Library film number ).
