the concepts you are studying as well as your ability to bring in appropriate and specific support for your ideas. Use your word count wisely. Long quoted passages take up too much space in your essay (and remember, the TAs have read everything, as have I). After you decide what prompt to answer, think about what your major points will be, map them out. How will the essay begin? How will it build on itself? How will it conclude? It’s always good to have an outline. I/we are interested in what your eye/I sees/reflects upon from the readings. The materials that you should use in writing your essay are the readings by Walter Echo-Hawk (including the powerpoint materials), the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and the Luci Tapahonso readings (including the powerpoint). Choose ONE of the following prompts and write your essay in response to the prompt. 1. Walter Echo-Hawk writes, “To what extent should indigenous peoples be secure in their land, cultural integrity, human rights, and political rights as Native people?” (p. 25). In his book, In the Courts of the Conqueror , he explains how this security has been undermined historically through the U.S. legal system. In the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, we have an international document that asserts and affirms this security. Write an essay that focuses on two of these issues—security of land, cultural integrity, human rights, and political rights.

    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.
