Paper bag vests and feathers, classroom pow wows, and discussions on who Indians were.
So, we have culled a list of resources for teachers to help expand their horizons to go beyond the stereotypes, and really teach their students the true history of the Native people of this country.
Feel free to print this out and give it to your kid’s teachers.
Gaining Cultural Perspective
Included is a table that examines cultural perspectives, a must-see for all non-Native teachers. While the curriculum is called, “Native American and Hispanic,” researchers are recognizing that most, if not all, minority perspectives tend to reflect indigenous worldviews, which is very different from the Euro-American perspective.

Editor’s note: This is by no means a comprehensive list, but it is a good start for any teacher looking to expand their knowledge of Native nations.
