This lesson focuses on the Native American Civil Rights protest campaign in the 1970s. It has background information on both the work sheet and PowerPoint on exactly who the indigenous peoples of the Americas are. It briefly covers the conflict in the 19th century and primarily focuses on the growth of RED POWER and the actions taken in the 1970s. 

The lesson contains tasks based on the sieges at Alcatraz and Wounded Knee. There are elements of independent work and class discussion as well as some lecture by the teacher.

The final task is to write a short essay answering the question - 'How successful were the Native Americans in achieving their aims by the end of the 1970s?'

EXTENSION TASK: A research homework task on the significance of Mount Rushmore in the campaign for students to complete.

 

CONTENTS:
