August 13, 2018

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Brightly colored trunks on wheels are scattered throughout classrooms in all elementary- and middle-school buildings in the North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District. Inside, the contents vary greatly, but are bound together by a central theme: American Indian culture and heritage.

Each item ties into a core subject. For instance, elementary students explore a trunk filled with items made from a buffalo — everything from the hide and spoons made from its horns to a sewing kit made from its dried bladder.
