Teaching the Role of the Indian in American History and Upgrading Curricula. A Position Paper.
Costo, Rupert
Presented in this document is a discussion of the need for an ongoing evaluation of the accuracy and adequacy of materials pertaining to American Indians in textbooks and reference books in use, or being produced for use, in the nation's schools. During this ongoing evaluation, to be done by a recognized permanent national committee of Indian scholars, the committee should work closely with textbook authors and publishers in preparation of all instructional materials about Indians intended for general as well as for local use, and the findings should be disseminated widely. Also, it is recommended that college courses such as The American Indian and Early European Contact, The American Indian in American History, The American Indian in American Life, and The Literary Heritage of the American Indian be developed.
