Canku Ota (Many Paths) An Online Newsletter Celebrating Native America December 2, 2000 - Issue 24 Native Americans Teach Students
About Ways of Life By Chris Bender Gazette staff writer photos of actual Catawba pottery A Catawba Native American couple visited fourth and fifth grade art classes at Coosa Elementary this week to teach them about the ancient craft of pottery.
The couple came as part of the Artists in Residence program, which is funded by the state and allows schools to bring in artists to teach classes.
Coosa art teacher Donna Sams said having the artists this week was a good tie-in, because November is also Native American History month.
The students made pottery using the same methods the Catawba Indians did thousands of years ago.
The Catawbas were a tribe that inhabited the Southeastern United States. Now they live on a reservation near Rock Hill, still making hand-crafted pottery the way their ancestors did.
"Pottery has been the primary livelihood of the Catawba tribe," said Warren Sanders, one of the artists. "It's what the Catawba used to trade with other people."
Cheryl Harris Sanders said the students used the pinch method to create the pots.

    That is what these team logos and mascots of native americans teach them~ that it is acceptable to demean a race or a group of people.
    "When I first landed in Cincinnati, I thought there weren't any Indians living here. But since noon, I have seen a Cherokee, Navajo, Winnebago, Dakota, Mohawk and a Comanche ~ And those were just the RV's, trucks, cars and small aircraft!" Dennis Banks At a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, these remarks were quite humorous, yet point out the fascination that America has with imagery in promoting products. This promotion focuses on symbols that reflect either the product or the belief behind the image. For example Wings shoes uses a show with wings, NBC uses a peacock, Gibraltar Insurance uses a rock, etc. But what about when that symbol is a caricature of a human being or of a race of people? How does that imagery promote forms of racism? The Cleveland Indians baseball franchise has as its logo a caricature of an Indian head smiling with huge glaring buckteeth. The Atlanta Braves, Kansas City Chiefs and Washington Redskins are all professional sport businesses which promote their teams with similar logos and mascots which demean and degrade Native peoples. The Atlanta Braves "tomahawk chop" is now a national gesture with baseball fans. Native people have demonstrated season after season in an attempt to halt the degrading chop. The sports fans who claim that the chop isn't offensive do not understand the deep pain which they inflict on Native people, especially Native children. Headdresses made of chicken feathers and the "war paint" they have adopted from Hollywood's portrayal of Native Americans add to the wound of racism. Traditionally, eagle feathers are only given to or worn by those who have received them for some action of great honor. Not everyone is so awarded during their lifetime. To see fake feathers worn by painted, often drunken fans at a sports game is a mockery of something Native people hold sacred. It would be the same as a crowd of fans dressed up as the Pope at a New Orleans Saints game and doing the "crucifix chop". What would be the reaction of Catholics around the country?

Know-How Thank Heaven for Cranberries Page 1 (of 1) The holiday season fast approaches, bringing with it thoughts and dreams of the traditional holiday meal. What would Thanksgiving and Christmas 'bird' dinners be without our tart, shiny little friend, the cranberry?! We all know that it is this bright red, tasty wee fruit that brightens and spices up the flavor of that turkey! We also have the cranberry to thank for adding that cheery, colorful touch to the decorated holiday dinner table, piled high with the foods we enjoy at this time of year. How did the scarlet cranberry become such a distinguished member of the American culinary culture and an intrinsic part of the traditional holiday meal?! History This small, impertinent fruit made its way from its humble origins in the swamps and bogs of North America to the tables of our most festive feasts. How? With a great deal of luck and pluck! Vaccinium macrocarpon (macro - large, carpon - fruit), the Large or American Cranberry, is indigenous to North America and was probably first used as a food by the Native Americans.

    8. Hardships On The Oregon-Trail
    Col. Patrick Conner, stationed in Salt Lake City, was among those who wanted to teach the native americans a lesson.
    Native Americans
    on the Oregon Trail Relationships
    The first section of the Oregon Trail bisected two major Native American tribesthe Cheyenne to the north and the Pawnee to the south. The emigrants worried about both. But the expected attacks did not come. In fact, there were many instances of Native American kindnesshelping pull out stuck wagons; rescuing drowning emigrants; even rounding up lost cattle Most of the encounters with Native Americans were simple business transactions. The emigrants offered clothes, tobacco or rifles, in exchange for Native American horses or food.
    Within a few years, the emigrants had overgrazed the prairie grasses, burned all the available firewood, and depleted the buffalo . Soon many tribes along the Platte were impoverished. The emigrants worried a great deal about possible Native American attacks, but very few were ever actually killed by the native tribes.

    When Teaching About Native American Peoples:
    indicates link to related site
    Understand the term "Native American" includes all peoples indigenous to the Western Hemisphere.
    Present Native American Peoples as appropriate role models to children.
    Native American students should not be singled out and asked to describe their families' traditions or their peoples' culture(s).
    Avoid the assumption there are no Native American students in your class.
    Use books and materials which are written and illustrated by Native American people as primary source materials: speeches, songs, poems, and writings, which show the linguistic skill of a people who have come from an oral tradition.
    When teaching ABC's, avoid "I is for Indian" and "E is for Eskimo."
    Avoid rhymes or songs that use Native Americans as counting devices, i.e. "One little, two little, three little..."
    Research the traditions and histories, oral and written, of Native Americans before attempting to teach these.

To Begin to Address the Miseducation of Your Students and as the First Level of Multicultural Education
    • Multicultural Education is a process and the contributions level is one of the lower levels of the process of multicultural education.  At the contributions level there is a focus on teaching about the contributions of all diverse populations of this society so we can listen, appreciate, and analyze the diverse voices that comprise our society.  E Pluribus Unum- “Out of Many, One”, our nation was founded on the interaction of many diverse populations and Native Americans are one of our many diverse populations that our students have been miseducated about. Remember the Contributions Level is JUST ONE step of the Multicultural Education Process IT IS NOT Multicultural Education itself.  It is an important part of the process, but it is not the process itself.  Do not think that if you teach about Native Americans along with all the other aspects of your curriculum that you have “done” multicultural education.

    What Not to Teach About Native Americans June Sark Heinrich recently directed an alternative school for Native American children in Chicago. Through her experiences she revealed many inadequacies in the way teachers present the history and heritage of the Native American people. As a result, she offers the following ideas to assist elementary school teachers in correcting the most common errors made in presenting Native American subject matter: Don't use alphabet cards that say A is for apple, B is for ball, and I is for Indian. This idea may seem small and trivial, but if you want your students to develop respect for Native Americans, don't start them out equating Indians with things like apples and balls. Don't talk about Indians as though they belong in the past. The fact is that about 800,000 Native Americans live in the United States, many on reservations and many in cities and towns. Don't talk about "them" and "us". Doing this reflects extreme insensitivity, as well as a misconception of historical facts. Actually, "they" are more truly "us" than anyone else.

    Some Teaching Ideas About How to Positively Present the Native American People Teaching students about Native Americans will be a task that will require a little bit of work on our part. We will have to go out and do some research, and come up with some authentic lessons and activities, rather than relying on materials that are already out there. It is probably recommened NOT to use most of those commercially prepared teaching materials that are currently out there, because several present a very generalized image of Native American people totally disregarding any individuality. During our research we stumbled upon some wonderful ideas relating to how to correctly teach young children about Native Americans in an article titled, "Teaching Young Children about Native Americans" by Debbie Reese (ERIC DIGEST, 1996). Here are some of the suggestions that she made: Make sure to provide present-day knowledge about Native Americans to balace the historical information. If you teach from only a historical point of view the children may come up with the idea that they only existed in the past.

    Mini-Unit Overview
    My mini-unit theme was decided after discussions with my cooperating teacher. She was going to be teaching the students about Native Americans and we decided that my mini-unit could be on the same theme so it would coordinate with her lessons. My lessons were developed for a second grade class and were designed to be an introductory unit to Native Americans. The lessons do not specifically teach about Native Americans, such as the history and involvement with Columbus. The theme of Native Americans was used as a guide to teach subject content and to give the students a general idea of what is important to Native Americans. Each lesson begins by reading a book about Native Americans, discussing the book with the focus on Native Americans, and then completing a related activity that covers content of various subjects. The unit is introduced with the book A,B,C's The American Indian Way
