The Indian in American History -The Sacred Tree Still Lives. A Teacher's Guide.
Spaulding, Sandra Lakota; Rouillard, John Caske
The purpose of this teacher's guide is to provide some necessary tools in order to expand and up-date courses in American history, with an emphasis on the major role of the original inhabitants of North America in the shaping of history. It is hoped the guide will enable the teacher to expand the high school students' historical viewpoint, and give them an honest view of the role played by the original Americans in American history. The 8 units covered are (1) Indians Discover America, (2) Home of the Free--Land of the Brave, (3) Columbus Discovers Indians, (4) Colonists Gain Freedom--Indians Lose Theirs, (5) Indian Fighters Seize the White House, 1812-1850, (6) Let Them Eat Grass, (7) A People's Dream Died There, and (8) The Only Good Indian is a Dead Indian. Special projects and suggested materials and a bibliography are provided at the end of each unit. The appendix includes books and recordings, a preliminary bibliography for Diegueno Indians, a list of Indian museums, and the transcript of the Court-Martial of Colonel Chivington. (FF)
