The purpose of this project was to compile activities and information that will be useful to educators in teaching about Native American tribes. These activities attempt to emphasize the multicultural aspects of Native tribes, as well as, teaching accurate historical data, and stressing the contributions and similarities of Native American cultures to mainstream society. In addition, this project utilizes the Indian Awareness Inventory found in Bulletin No. 84, Teaching About Native Americans (1990) from the National Council for the Social Studies. This inventory is intended for use with the student studying Native American history and culture and will create criteria for teaching students of all cultures about Native Americans.
