The Rapid City Public School Foundation has received a $178,000 grant to help teachers promote understanding of Native American culture.
The money will fund field trips for the next two summers for 18 teachers and 18 other community members. They will travel to cultural sites like Devil's Tower and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.
A group of 40 teachers earlier this summer spent a week touring on a "classroom on wheels" program to learn about Lakota culture.
The grant is being financed by the Bush Foundation, a Minnesota-based non-profit.
