Indians of Nevada: Volume 1.
Dunn, Helen
As part of a continuing program designed to provide Nevada's school population with information that will facilitate greater awareness and understanding of both past and present Native Nevadan lifestyles and contributions, this generalized curriculum guide might constitute a social studies unit for the upper levels of elementary and/or junior high schools. Divided into 3 basic areas of study, predicted on time periods, this guide encompasses: (1) The Economy of the Great Basin in Prehistoric Times (The Indian--His Home and Family); (2) Historic Times (Reservations, Tribes, Location, and Jurisdiction); and (3) The Historic Indian. Each narrative is followed by a word study list. Also included is a Nevada map designating county boundaries and the historical territories of the Washoe, Northern Paiute, Southern Paiute, and Shoshone Indian tribes. Among the cultural concepts addressed are nomadic tendencies, family groups, extended families, food procurement and processing, children, marriage, practical education, respect for the aged, shared parental responsibilities, and those historical developments which altered the Indian way of life. Examples of words found in the word study lists are aboriginal, primitive, nomadic, necessity, economy, survival, source, and bureau. (JC)
