The Miseducation of Indigenous People
The Miseducation of Indigenous People offers readings, lesson plans, and student activities on the US government’s policies designed to “educate,” “Christianize,” and “civilize” Indigenous children. Students will interpret historical facts, photographs, reports, quotes, video clips, and more to analyze forced assimilation or “miseducation” of Indigenous children, and how they and their cultures have survived despite such adversity. Designed for high school students, the materials can be easily adapted for a college survey course.
