5th Grade Learns About Native American Culture


Fifth grade gathered around Eileen Quintana as she educated us about the traditions of many indigenous Native American tribes from Utah. She opened with a typical Navajo greeting, told in her native tongue, and impressed the kids with the sounds and the translation of her heritage. The students learned that there are five indigenous tribes in Utah, and that they all speak languages that are very different from one another. She also showed them many of the things that Navajos (and other tribes) use to take care of their young children.
