American Indian education

July 16, 2013
Weirton Daily Times
Ann Sweeney taught the Cherokee alphabet to participants in the week-long Summer 2013 Youth Educational Program Monday at Historic Fort Steuben while Ryan Matyas listens. The fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders learned about the different cultures and crafts of the Indian tribes that once called the Ohio Valley home during the Monday class. The pupils will learn about a day in the life of a soldier at the fort today. Additional classes this week include learning how Ohio became a state, uncovering treasures at the Fort Steuben archaeological site and the Lewis and Clark expedition. Information about the summer program is available by calling the fort at (740) 283-1787. -- Dave Gossett
