ASSUMPTIOMS ABOUT NATIVE AMERICANS 2 Assumptions about Native Americans In the nineteenth century, assumptions about Native Americans still hold that Native Americans practice polygamy and do not respect women. Native American women are depicted as sexual objects and hence are commonly referred to as promiscuous (Barney, 2007). Non- Native American men take advantage of this fallacy to mistreat the Native Americans by raping their women and girls and murder them. There is another assumption that Native Americans understand and adhere to their historical and cultural beliefs and that the level of their knowledge is based on individual’s community and family links (Mack, 2012). The whites assumed that they were superior to the Native American cultures and were able to master most of their cultural values and emotions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
