A new computer game designed in part by members of the Spirit Lake Nation, is aiming to change the way native students learn about their culture.

The game mixes lessons about Spirit Lake history with other academic subjects, which game designers say will help students better discover their heritage. Designers say cultural lessons were being ignored at native american schools. They hope to improve the cultural curriculum by pairing it with other school subjects. Adam Ladwig reports.
