The Cora: People of the Sierra Madre.
Lane, Sarah; And Others
This text explores an isolated and indigenous people who live in the Sierra Madre Occidental in Mexico. Isolation has allowed the Cora Indians to maintain their traditional customs to a much greater extent than many other groups of Native Americans. The historical and geographical contexts of the Cora are presented in this curriculum resource. Readings include: "History and Geography"; "Life of the Cora"; "Myth of the Cora"; and "Art of the Cora." These topics may be studied independently and in any sequence. Discussion questions and student activities are provided to support each topic. Instructions are given for art activities: "Ojos de Dios" (eye of God); "Hasha Masks"; and "Making a Backstrap Loom." Contains 15 references. (MM)
