Students visited various sta- tions to learn about Native Americans and their history in our area.

One of the big- gest highlights was the in- formative demonstration by Chief Strong Buffalo. The students toured his authen- tic tepee and were captivat- ed with the huge variety of hunting and farming imple- ments on display.
