A California Indian Resource Guide, 2003-2004. Activities and References for Teachers.
This guide is intended for Bay Area (California) teachers who are interested in incorporating information on California Indians into their unit on California state history. The guide's purpose is to list resources in the Bay Area to help this unit come alive for students. Considerable care has been taken in the guide to choose only those resources that are accurate representations of the Indian cultures of California and that take into account current and sometimes divergent perspectives on these cultures such as: their history, folklore, material cultures, and traditions. The guide is divided into 11 sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Offices of American Indian Education"; (3) "Field Trips"; (4) "Teaching Kits"; (5) "Reference Books for Adults"; (6) "Cultural/Historical (Folklore, Biographical, Photographs/Crafts/Art, Games, Ethnobotany)"; (7) "Children's Books"; (8) "Periodicals"; (9) "Classroom Visits"; (10) "Seminars and Classes"; and (12) "Websites."
