Choices & Careers; Free to Choose: Traditional Roles. With Leaders Guide.
Dodge, Carol J.
Focusing on a comparison of actual roles with stereotypical roles of tribal women, this unit emphasizes the fact that roles of Indian women of the past were dependent upon tribal customs and living conditions. The narrative section of the unit examines typical roles in Woodland tribes and describes the false information and stereotypes which originated in the writings of early white settlers. Designed for girls from 9 to 18 years of age, the unit has two objectives: to dispel the distorted stereotypes that still exist about early traditional Indian women and to help the girls appreciate their tribal heritage. The leaders' guide provides background information, learning activities, and a set of discussion questions designed to help girls deal with the distorted stereotypes that may affect them today.
