Teaching American Indian History: An Interdisciplinary Approach. (A Curriculum Guide).
Vantine, Larry
Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach, anthropological and historical, this curriculum guide provides activities and instructional objectives which are "value-oriented". Emphasis is on Indian values, their cultural relativity, and their comparison with Euro-American concepts. An inventory of the values held by both groups allows the student to better understand what specific values American Indian policy attempted to change, reasons or justification for the direct changes, and why most of the programs consequently failed to accomplish their objectives. Each unit includes some general objectives, an outline, points to emphasize, activities (i.e., map assignments, oral and written reports, panel discussions, and charts), and listings of instructional aids and student and teacher resources. Units cover the prehistory of the American Indian; Indian cultures East and West of the Mississippi; early relations between Indians and Europeans; Native responses to the colonial policies and the revitalization movements East and West of the Mississippi; formation of early United States government Indian policy; Indian removal; conquest and confinement in the Plains and the Far West; the Peyote religion; the Dawes Act; Indian reform and the Indian Reorganization Act; Indian policy after World War II (termination); and contemporary Indian society. Suggested diagnostic and summative evaluations are given. (NQ)
