This resource guide presents curriculum materials that focus on American Indians and their culture. The materials were compiled at a national workshop that brought together educators from the United States and Canada to develop authentic cultural materials to enhance the educational experience of Indian students. The guide contains lessons in social studies, languages, science, health, art, personal development, physical education, language arts, reading, writing, and family living. Lessons in this guide are organized by grade levels K-12, under the following headings: (1) American Indian languages; (2) American Indian science; (3) American Indian arts and dance; (4) American Indian images; (5) American Indian interpretation; (6) American Indian narratives; and (7) American Indian administration. Each lesson consists of goals and objectives; concepts covered and cultural presentation; class activities; resources; and the name and address of the person who developed the lesson. The document contains numerous illustrations. (LP)
