Indian students get real-life housing experience

Students at St. Labre Indian School on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana are getting hands-on experience in the housing industry.

The juniors and seniors learn everything about housing, from planning to building to budgeting. Their project this semester was to refurbish an abandoned trailer that they will sell and share in the profits.

"It's fun work," Isaiah Singer told The Billings Gazette. "You can learn a lot of stuff."
