Journal 3 Promoting Native Art and Legal Representation Change is an essential part of any organisms’ life in order to develop, adapt and survive in the constantly changing environment. Native peoples are a prime example of this need to adapt and survive in the face of change. Many of the readings we’ve done in this class have shown excellent specific examples as well, including the life stories from authors Charles Eastman and Ella Deloria. These prominent Native figures have shown true hardships in deciding what parts of their Native identity to sacrifice and what parts of the Western identity they wanted to, or were forced to, adopt. These aspects of change were more or less conscious decisions of the individual in order to function in the dominant society. However, there are other aspects which have changed on a less conscious level, such as the transformation of Native arts. Dorothy Dunn’s story about the Indian Painting Studio, at the Santa Fe Indian School, depicts the transformation from traditional to modern means of Native art as occurring in a passive, almost natural, fashion.

    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.
