28-3 "Indigenous Peoples' History" Resource Guide

Much of this is due to technological advancements such as PowerPoint, online resources, and web platforms such as Blackboard. But in large part it is also due to our changing perspectives on the past. The one truism to remember when teaching history is that all history is revisionism. Our present-day realities shape the way we think about the past and interpret historical trends and figures. In many ways, tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) are on the cutting edge of such historical revisionism. Below are 10 history books that TCU educators may find useful. Calloway, C.G. (1997).

"--American Historical Review “Through his exhaustive research and attention to larger connections, Rushforth provides perhaps the most compelling account yet of the significance of Indian slavery to early American and Atlantic histories. . . . An interactive record of Native American slavery in New France. Between 1660 and 1760, French colonists in New France enslaved as many as 10,000 Native Americans, forcing them to work as farm hands, domestic servants, and construction laborers.

An interactive record of Native American slavery in New France.

Enslaved Natives tended livestock, prepared meals, washed laundry, loaded trade goods into warehouses and onto boats, and cared for French children. Despite the trauma of their violent capture and forced transport into an alien culture, they found ways to survive: forming friendships, stealing private moments of solitude, making plans for a future when they would no longer be slaves. Most never saw that future. More than half died before the age of 20, and only a few successfully escaped or were freed. Surviving documents offer few details about their complex lives.

Douglas Treaties translated into indigenous languages of Vancouver Island for first time

But the effort to translate them has also highlighted how differently their meanings were understood by both sides who signed them. Between 1850 and 1854, then-governor of Vancouver Island James Douglas signed more than a dozen treaties with First Nations from Victoria to Port Hardy, exchanging about 930 square kilometres of land for cash, clothing and blankets. The historic treaties, sometimes called the Vancouver Island Treaties, ensured that First Nations would retain their villages and fields and would be able to hunt and fish on the surrendered lands. "Every time there was another development on our land and in our territories ... there is another loss to the connection to a fishery or a hunting location that's ages old," he said.
