Education
Teachers to spend week at Northern Cheyenne


A five-day workshop on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation will help teachers learn more about tribal history and culture.

"Battling for Survival: American Indians in Montana" is designed to help the teachers fulfill the American Indian Education for All. The law requires public schools to teach about Indian history and culture.

For five days, the 20 high school and middle school teachers will focus on the Battle of the Rosebud and the Battle of the Little Bighorn, tour both sites and learn the tribal perspective. They will also watch Cheyenne dancers, listen to Cheyenne music and hear Cheyenne storytellers.
