Fife, WA, Schools will teach Native American history

Funded by the Puyallup Tribe and led by a former chair of the Skokomish people, the Fife, Washington, school system will begin teaching about local native history and relationships between tribal and other governments as part of the history curriculum.

The courses are in response to a 2005 Washington State law that encourages the teaching of American Indian history and culture in public school districts.
