Students at the Ndakinna Education CenterFourth graders at Genet Elementary School recently visited the Ndakinna Education Center (pronounced en-dak-enna) in Greenfield Center as part of the Native American social studies unit.

Students at the Ndakinna Education CenterStudents learned about how local tribes lived, hunted for food, built shelters and made fire.
