Indian Education For All
Montana’s constitutional requirement and duly enacted policy require recognition of the distant and unique heritage of American Indians and a commitment in our educational goals to preserve their cultural heritage. Every Montanan, whether Indian or non-Indian, should be encouraged to learn about the distinct and unique heritage of American Indians in a culturally responsive manner.
Indian Education for All is included in the Montana Visual Arts Standards.
