Toothman, Maryann; Jensen, Denise
An intermediate or junior high level unit on Indians indigenous to Iowa focuses on history, culture, and cultural conflict between the Indians and white Americans. Many of the materials can be adapted for use in other states or for a more general unit on American Indians. Twenty lessons cover the location of Iowa; prehistoric Iowa; Indian society prior to the arrival of Europeans; Oneota; the distribution of Indian tribes in Iowa; Indian food, clothing, welfare, and religion; transportation, communication, society, and government; arts; cultural conflict; Indian removal from Iowa; reservations; Indian cultural contributions to Iowa; and contemporary Indian life. Each lesson contains objectives, activities, readings, and illustrations. Suggestions for culminating activities, a glossary, and a bibliography are also provided. This document is one of a collection of materials from the Iowa Area Education Agency 7 Teacher Center project. (LP)
