SALT LAKE CITY — There are few who really know about Utah’s Native American history and even fewer represent the tribes that lived on these lands. Yet one man does both, and he’s making a big difference within the west side community.
Across Interstate 15 on the west side sits Neighborhood House, a place for kids to go for before or after school programs.
Nate Manuel is a teacher and is in charge of the intergenerational student program for K-12 students.
“We just try to teach a lot of life skill activities,” Manuel said.
Skills like art and cooking, but also understanding respect and when bullying occurs.
The greatest lessons Manuel has taught have come from who he is.
