This Proud Land, A Unit in Native American Studies.
Noe, Sally W.; Wright, Gregory, Ed.
The American Indians of the Southwest--their history and culture from ancient to modern times--are the focal point of this resource manual based on an American history course developed at Gallup High School, Gallup, New Mexico. The course covers ancient culture and migrations of the Indian tribes now inhabiting New Mexico and the coming of Spanish explorers and Anglo settlers; it concludes with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. This guide includes an outline for the two-semester course, performance objectives for students, maps, charts, sample tests and study guides, chronologies, and two detailed units of study titled "Navajo Clan System and Distribution" and "Migratory Distribution". Brief background is provided on southwestern geology and physical geography; on cultural differences and similarities among the Anasazi, Hohokan, and Mogollon-Mimbres cultures from which modern tribes descent; and on the history and culture of Pueblos, Zunis, and Apaches--especially the "apaches de nabahu", the Navajos. A bibliography of 55 entries directs the reader to in-depth information on various aspects of Southwest history. (JH)
