Tuba City Boarding School era ending<br>

TUBA CITY — Demolition has begun on buildings that hold much history for Native American students in this Hopi and Navajo reservation area.

Three of the original red stone Tuba City Boarding School buildings, constructed in the 1830’s by Native American labor, will be dismantled in the very short future. These buildings originally housed dormitories for year-long students, classrooms and administrative space.
