The Intermountain Indian School.
After a week of travel that began on foot or on burro from the depths of the reservation in Arizona, 234 Navajo children stepped off the bus at the Intermountain Indian Boarding School in Brigham City, Utah, on January 11, 1950. Within a week the total enrollment was 500. Attendance increased gradually until it peaked at 2,300 in the 1960s.
Experiences of Native American students, their teachers and other personnel until the school closed in May 1984 are documented in this exhibit.

The Jaw Appeal
I swear, the "Our Last Go" email was meant to be our last fundraising plea. But, literally while that email was going out, our image editor, Shalee Cooper, was on her bike in the Granary District, shooting images for this month's edition. Her tire got caught in the railroad tracks, her body went flying over the handlebars, and she dislocated her jaw.
So, there I am texting and phoning, "Shalee, where are the Moulton images? Shalee, have you gotten a hold of Elmer Preslee? Shalee when can I expect the Paul Vincent Bernard shots?"
And this is how Shalee looked.
So, here's the deal. One last plea. We didn't reach our goal during the Spring Fundraiser. Had we reached it, one of the things we wanted to do was bump up Shalee's pay by $50 a month. We'd still like to do that (especially now that she has that doctor's bill).
So, we're just asking, help us raise $600 more.
It will all go to our jaw-droppingly good image editor.
