An Unbalanced Perspective: Two Minnesota Textbooks Examined by an American Indian.
Cavender, Chris C.
The main purpose of this paper was to show what the author, a Sioux Indian, regards as the lack of a balanced perspective in history books dealing with the American Indian--in particular the Indian in Minnesota history. The procedure used examines several textbooks which present a derogatory or unfair picture of the Indian. The paper includes suggestions which are intended to eliminate some of the cultural narrowmindedness of many historians and educators. The 2 textbooks singled out for closest examination were "Minnesota: Star of the North" (1961) by Antoinette E. Ford and Neoma Johnson, and "Building Minnesota" (1938) by Theodore C. Blegen. (LS)
