Like all kids in Utah, American Indian children are required by law to attend school, but they are rarely taught about their own history, culture or customs. Recent legislation aimed to change that by footing the bill for the development of curriculum that can be taught to any age group, but specifically to students in 4th and 7th-grade Utah studies programs.
