Edited on Friday, 12-2-12, to insert information about physical appearance and why it does not matter, and to change the title of this page from 'We are not "people of color" to "Are we 'people of color? ' Through AICL, I share a lot of information that I think will help readers learn about and understand the 500+ federally recognized Native Nations in the United States. I think it important that people know that what we look like, physically, is not important. Our membership or citizenship in our respective nations is what matters. Most people know about the federal government and the state governments, but very few know about tribal governments.

Very few people know that American Indians in the United States have a status that marks us as distinct from minority or underrepresented populations (such as African Americans). That status is that we are sovereign tribal nations. A common phrase used to describe minority or underrepresented populations is "people of color. " Works cited: Native Hope. Newly Digitized Collection of Early 20th-Century Lakota Drawings Tells a Curious History. CHICAGO — At a glance, they may look like more conventional outsider art work, but upon closer inspection you realize these drawings contain a history of a community that was actively being erased by the United States. Many show scenes of warfare and hunting, vividly depicted in watercolor and colored pencils and punctuated with splashes of red. In 1922, the Newberry Library acquired this collection of 160 drawings, attributed to “Sioux Indians” living in Fort Yates, which serves as headquarters of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

The three boxes of art were sold by one Aaron McGaffey Beede, an Episcopal missionary who had provided paper and art supplies to the residents he had come to know, and paid them small sums to purchase the resulting works. This strange exchange arose from a dire situation: in the winter of 1913-14, the Lakota faced starvation from failed crops and a mysterious disappearance of cattle. - Resources. Deconstructing the Myths of "The First Thanksgiving" by Judy Dow (Abenaki) Revised 06/12/06 Buy your own copy of Thanksgiving: A Native Perspective here! What is it about the story of "The First Thanksgiving" that makes it essential to be taught in virtually every grade from preschool through high school? What is it about the story that is so seductive? Why has it become an annual elementary school tradition to hold Thanksgiving pageants, with young children dressing up in paper-bag costumes and feather-duster headdresses and marching around the schoolyard?

Is it because as Americans we have a deep need to believe that the soil we live on and the country on which it is based was founded on integrity and cooperation? We offer these myths and facts to assist students, parents and teachers in thinking critically about this holiday, and deconstructing what we have been taught about the history of this continent and the world. Myth #1: "The First Thanksgiving" occurred in 1621. Notes. Cynsations. SDHC's Lakota Translated Book Coincides with Language Adoption Bill.

It is very likely that if you do not do any further research or verify our results, you will err in your acknowledgements. We recommend contacting the nations you get in your results directly, to learn more about how they want to be acknowledged and any other nations or peoples in the area. Why acknowledge territory? Territory acknowledgement is a way that people insert an awareness of Indigenous presence and land rights in everyday life. However, these acknowledgements can easily be a token gesture rather than a meaningful practice. As Chelsea Vowel, a Métis woman from the Plains Cree speaking community of Lac Ste. “If we think of territorial acknowledgments as sites of potential disruption, they can be transformative acts that to some extent undo Indigenous erasure.
