Richard Henry Pratt notes that with the upcoming return of 86 students to their homes the school will be able to accommodate 175 new students in the fall. Pratt notes that there are already 20 students from the Osage Nation and 25 from the Omaha Nation. He believes that many the remaining students could be brought in from the Sioux Nation or from nations with students being returned.
Pratt ends by saying that future students should be brought in on a five year commitment rather than three years.
