CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A group of Wyoming lawmakers are pushing for a statewide curriculum on Native American tribes.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2g6iKKi ) that the Select Committee on Tribal Relations unanimously passed the bill, commonly called Indian Education for All, last month.

The bill would have the State Board of Education work with tribal governments to develop education standards for teaching Wyoming students about the state’s Native American history.

Wind River Native Advocacy Center leader Jason Baldes, a member of the Eastern Shoshone tribe, says his group plans to bring roughly 50 members of the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes to Cheyenne to lobby for the bill this session.
