Why not go straight to the source and ask a real-live Native American instead of relying on interpretations of historians? By contacting tribal offices and requesting names and contacts of people whose job it is to share the tribes' rich histories with others a teacher can insure a more balanced view of past events.
Good idea--thanks for contributing!
The National Museum of the American Indian has many good resources for educators. Their website is: http://www.nmai.si.edu.
There is a terrific new book out that I would recommend. It is American Indians American Presidents edited by Clifford E. Trafzer in association with th National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution--very readable and useable. It discusses the relationship between American Indians and American presidents in five parts from the Native Nations and the New Nation through the Era of Self-Determination today.
