MODULE 2 Assignment Click the Pearson Materials link under Course Home, and then, click on “An Early European Image of Native Americans Columbian Exchange.” Examine the image and listen carefully to the audio explanation. Answer the Critical Thinking question at the end of the presentation. In what ways does this image reveal more about Europeans than Native Americans? The woodcut by German artist Johann Froschauer depicted the way Europeans saw Native Americans when they, first made contact. That picture was to convince and justify Europeans actions against Native Americans. Native Americans were depicted as Savages, cannibals, and practiced sex taboo which was no tolerated in Europeans culture. That way of living, culture different than European culture could not be accepted because for Europeans only the Christian culture (European Culture) was and still is, for many people the best way of living. Any other culture should be banned. Also, that portray of Native American did allow Europeans to take over the land of the Native Europeans. In conclusion, this woodcut revealed that Europeans were not educated about the Native Americans culture. Use simple Internet research to find Native American places, names, words, and names of sports teams in use in America today: Names of states, names of cities, names on the physical U.S. map (rivers, lakes, mountains, etc.), names of cars and trucks, names of sports teams Why might some Native Americans object to the use of their tribe as the name of a sports team? From my internet search., I found out that: A. There are 26 states named using Native American; - Alabama-Named after the Alibamu tribe of Indians who were members of the Creek Confederacy. Literally, it means “clears the thicket.” - Alaska-From the word “Alakshak’ which means peninsula. - Arizona- This one’s uncertain but may derive from a word meaning “small springs.” - Connecticut- From the expression “quinnitukg-ut” which means “at the long tidal river.” -
