Overview

This six week unit seeks to answer the question: How does an indigenous people maintain their culture under a government with different cultural and spiritual beliefs? Students do a variety of activities including writing poetry, researched essays, comparison essays, poetry analysis, and oral histories.

Mr. Conley's short stories are engaging and forthright. They provide an intimate, touching view of the Native American plight not revealed in history books. One student told me she had thought she knew everything about American Indians until she read this book. The obvious issues of institutional racism, abuse and tyranny of our government are brought home by these stories. The result is a greater comprehension of our background and dedication to a fairer and kinder future.
