Write an essay on the Major contributions of the American Indians to the world. What had tribal nations developed in the Americas that were lacking in Other Countries at the time of contact? Start with…What were the contributions? Where did these contributions have the greatest impact and why? What do the various contributions tell us about the American Indian society as related to their cultural values compared to other nation-states? Note>> I discussed all this in the Collaborate lecture.
Hint: you do not have to try to include every aspect of the material you read or the lectures that I have conducted. Pick several examples and write about them. Compare & contrast – and analyze what you have learned about the Native American culture and the Anglo-American culture you were raised and socialized in during your development to these new cultures you have been introduced to in this course. Remember to review the pictures and artifacts in the archive that I have made available to you (symbolism in their art, buildings, clothing, ceremonial regalia, etc… is all part of the Indian expression of life-ways – socially and symbolically). You may be creative. You may research for additional information. There is no real right or wrong answers here. Rather, I am most interested in your understanding of the material, your analysis, and what you have learned to date.
NOW >>You should document (post in text citations) and make some reference to your course material as well as outside resources of information. Your textbooks serve as a source as well as other researched information. Most colleges use the APA style and format. Example > (Giddens, 2011).
