Article By: Eileen Quintana

"Nebo Title VI Indian Education staff have enjoyed visiting the schools teaching 4th graders about American Indians and their vast contributions to society, we were delighted to meet so many attentive
students along with fellow Nebo team members. We want to thank our schools for sharing this important information about the monumental contributions in food, medicine, technology, language, government,
environmental resources, philosophy and overall discoveries by Native Americans and indigenous peoples. This is not even the tip of the iceberg in the vast amount of information about this subject.
Inclusion of this information in lesson plans and curriculum is one of our leading goals in Nebo School District Indian Education Program. Please feel free to use the links we have provided and contact our office if you have further questions!"
