It remained open for nearly a century, offering Chickasaw girls one of the finest educations in the West. After being forcibly relocated to Indian Territory, the Chickasaws viewed education as instrumental to their survival in a rapidly changing world.

Bloomfield became their way to prepare emerging generations of Chickasaw girls for new challenges and opportunities. Amanda J. Cobb became interested in Bloomfield Academy because of her grandmother, Ida Mae Pratt Cobb, an alumna from the 1920s.

Drawing on letters, reports, interviews with students, and school programs, Cobb recounts the academy's success story.

For the Chickasaw Nation, Bloomfield—a tool of assimilation—became an important method of self-preservation.
