Pomo for The Indian Children's Place, Hintil Kuu Ca is the only Native American child development center (CDC) in an urban area in California. Started in 1974, the idea originated from a school called Red Rock School created during the Alcatraz island occupation in the early 70's. It currently serves 119 children. Hintil is one of seven CDC's currently listed for closure at the end of August. Funding for early child education has been suspended due to the budget crisis in Sacramento.
