The Winnebago Tribe and the Nebraska Landscape (Junior High Unit).
Intended to inform junior high school students about the history of the Winnebago tribe and how that history was influenced by contact with the European culture, the curriculum unit focuses on four general areas: origin and removals and migration of the tribe, world view and history, social organizations, and economy. The unit begins with a short teacher outline including the objective, materials, activities, and evaluation methods for each general area. The unit contains materials for each area including essays for students to read or teachers to lecture, quizzes, maps, teacher background information, student activities, and a brief bibliography. Among the subjects covered are the early home of the Winnebagoes, the Winnebago creation story, social structure, the political system of the tribe, half tribes and clans, economic life before 1833 in Wisconsin and after 1855 in Minnesota, the contemporary economic life in Nebraska, and food sources.
