Kalispell School brings Blackfeet Teachings into the Classroom

Incorporating teachings on Montana’s tribes into the classroom is the goal behind the state’s “Indian Education for All” initiative. This year Hedges Elementary School in Kalispell embarked upon a school-wide effort with each class studying a different Montana tribe, combining all that information into a presentation, and sharing it with the rest of the school. Teachers involved say it’s a way for everyone, students on up through faculty, to learn good background information about the states unique tribes.
