InscriptionKIOWA 51: Even the first-grade Indian students at the Fort Still Indian School, take an interest in raising livestock and planting garden crops. Although such projects are part of their school work, becoming more difficult as the students progress to higher grades, the students take a genuine interest in the work as they share in the proceeds of the sale of their produce.
