Discussion Board Participation ( 150 Points ) Students will be expected to actively participate in an effort to ensure their own and their colleague’s understanding of the ideas presented in course. Willingness to contribute ideas, to examining issues from a variety of perspectives, and to be a constructive force in the learning process is essential. Discussion posts should be at least one paragraph and cover all questions asked in the prompt. Focus on important points that you got out of the readings or films that relate to Indigenous peoples in the U.S. and globally. There is no right answer, but you are expected to think critically and carefully about course material and reflect in your post. You don’t need to cite your sources in general for these assignments, except when quoting. Please follow correct grammar and spelling. Contemporary Indigenous Peoples Issues – 7 News Clip Essays of 500 words or more ( 140 Points ). Use Indian Country Today, or other media like Cultural Survival www. culturalsurvival .org and select an article for the assignment. Pick an article which addresses at least one theme from that week’s material. 1. Summarize the article 2. Include which indigenous community/region (if mentioned) are discussed in the article and how it relates to course material 3. Include a personal reflection on story. One paragraph for each part usually works well. Make sure to cite and reference where appropriate, according to MLA or APA format, either is fine. Just make sure you cite both in text and in your references, this is the easiest way to lose points. We Shall Remain: America Through Native Eyes film series, five episodes ( 100 Points ). These comprehension questions challenge you (students) to make connections and understand the effects of historical circumstances on this particular chapter of history, the cause and effect relationships between historical events and social movements, and the effects of implementing U.S. policy. After viewing the film, answer the discussions questions to better understand important themes and issues that make Native history an essential part of American history. Minor outside research may need to be conducted in order to answer the questions, but these sources do not need to be cited in your submission. Use your research skills if you get stumped. Try to make each response to a question at least a full sentence (in other words, answer the question completely). Arizona Tribe Research Assignment ( 50 Points ) will demonstrate your understanding of course competencies and readings. Go to the Inter Tribal Council of Arizona website and identify a Tribal Nation in Arizona for your assignment. You will conduct research of the selected Tribal Nation using various sources 2

    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.
