Native American history education lacking - Time to stop teaching fairy tales and teach truthful history.

Native American history education lacking - Time to stop teaching fairy tales and teach truthful history. | Native America | Scoop.it

Native American history education lacking. The lack of proper history teaching in our schools is a major factor contributing to Native American marginalization.

Shawn Wright's curator insight, September 14, 9:21 AM
Students certainly know about Rosa Parks and Frederick Douglass, but their knowledge of Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse and Geronimo is limited to nonexistent. Few know the tribes of these key historical figures, much less what they did how it defined their tribes. The lack of proper history teaching in our schools is a major factor contributing to Native American marginalization. When do you recall studying the influential Native American leaders or the adversity they faced at the voting booth or in the education system? “We now try to share the information with teachers so that they can be well informed,” Coushatta tribe elder Bertney Langley said. “We’re not sure if they simply don’t have the resources or if they just didn’t bother looking for them.” Without adequate knowledge of Native American history, students are susceptible to perceiving stereotypes, misconceptions and false notions as truth. The vague comprehension of Native Americans that supposedly educated people have is bothersome. We all need to actively change this model. American history must begin to include the actual history that this nation is founded upon. As a country we must begin to acknowledge our own use of genocide, concentration camp reservations, application of germ warfare via smallpox blankets, presidents ignoring supreme court rulings in favor of Native Rights (A Jackson) out right property and land theft, ................... All of these things go directly against the Nobel view most have of America being founded upon equal rights blind justice and freedom. Time to stop teaching fairy tales and teach truthful history.

Terrance H BoothSr's insight:

Native Casinos have several restaurants and so far I have only seen Navajo Pride Pinto Beans, No Native Cuisine restaurants in any Native Cuisine  I know non-Native food Companies raking in revenue and I know several tribes are into agriculture. Some national chain stores have "Ethnic Food"  section but here again no Native Food Products.
