The Cocopah Indian Tribe earlier this month welcomed 20 new teachers from the Somerton School District. The tribe provided these teachers with a tour of the Cocopah Museum, a presentation about the Cocopah Tribe and Cocopah Tribal government along with some refreshments.
Each year, the tribe welcomes new teachers to the community. Cocopah students, kindergarten through 8thgrades, attend Somerton public schools.
