Adam Sorenson Prof. Riggs COMP 01112 2/12/18 Misrepresentation of Native Americans Native American’s for many years now have been viewed as lone warriors or squaw, some people don’t even know that they still exist! People just think of the Native American people in storybook tales and nothing more then that.

The Tsilhqot People have been fighting logging issues since the 1980’s and are still fighting over other issues like mining since 2013 (The Star, Supreme Court Grants Land Title…, 2014). Not only did the Tsilhqot people have property issues arise from resource development but the Haida as well. The Haida Native group in British Columbia also protested and opposed logging on the Queen Charlotte Islands in 1985 (Centre for Native Governance, Haida, 2013). In 1987 the Province of British Columbia signed an agreement to give some land back however, it took six years to complete and during this time frame they continued their developments (Centre for Native Governance, Haida, 2013).

A Ghostly Spark Introduction (reveal): Native American culture has always been an interest of mine. Since my beginning with the Boy Scouts of America on my path to Eagle Scout, I have come closer to the dense but often forgotten history of the First Nation people of America. Upon joining the Order of the Arrow, the BSA’s honor society centered around Native American virtues and beliefs, I have continued to take it upon myself to learn more about the long forgotten Native history. While I knew about the general struggles the Native Americans faced as “white man” invaded the unharnessed Western frontier, I had not learned about the specific catalyzing incidents that caused such conflict and suffered between these two cultures. While searching through topics like native music and combat, I knew I needed an event that sparked the rift between these two types of people, growing U.S. government and early
Have you ever had a family and a bright future in one place and were forced to move the place where you have lived for most and or all of your life? Well the Native Americans have or “The First Americans.” North America had people living in it long before the first explorers and settlers arrived. Unfortunately, they were pushed off of their land to make way for white settlers, who felt they had the right to own the land. In my essay I will be explaining how and if the way we treat the Native Americans over time has changed.
The Navajo National Monument The Navajo National Monument is located in Navajo and Coconino counties in Arizona, with an area of 360 acres. It was created on March 20, 1909 and is administered by the National Parks Service, being incorporated into the National Register of Historic Places on October 15, 1966. It was established to preserve three well-preserved houses of the Anasazi ancestral village, these ruins are Broken Pottery (Kits 'iil), Ledge House (Britát 'ahkin), and Inscription House (Ts 'ah Blii ' Kin).

The first unit that we covered in semester one was the Native Americans. We learned about the Native American tribes such as the Iroquois, Navajo, Cherokee, Apache, Hopis and many more ("Diversity of Native American Groups."). These tribes spoke 200 different languages and their ways of life were diverse ("Diversity of Native American Groups."). There were tribes that did not engage in war, like the Hopis and some that were not afraid to fight, like the Apache ("Diversity of Native American Groups."). The tribes settled all around America, so their climate varied.
Native American culture Between the Five Native American cultures, most definitely the most viable one was the Incas. They engaged in agriculture, bringing water down from the Andes by aqueducts which represented a well developed architecture and math knowledge. The Incas also had the cities connected by good roads; they were organized. Also, they lived peacefully and this is another thing that can make them a more viable society, when you don’t fight the enemy but peacefully absorbed them with promises prosperity and peace you get to know other culture, other ways of architecture and learn a lot more.
Native Americans are the type of people to celebrate their culture. These people still celebrate rites of passages from 500 years ago. Native Americans do ceremonies that are usually tradition to complete their rites of passage. These passages can be elaborate or for some, really personal. The two stories “The Medicine Bag” and “Apache Girl’s rite of passage” share similarities and differences.
Native American Ceremonies’ When I was ten years old I learned of my Indian culture. I learned I was of the Cherokee tribe. My dad had always hung Indian decorations in our home, but I have never given much thought of why he has done so. This peaked my interest, so I started asking questions. He told me we were part Cherokee and part Choctaw native American.
The Potlatch is a ceremonial feast held by tribes of Northwest Indians in North America. Members of these tribes would gather and save their possessions for many years, only to then give away or destroy their wealth during the Potlatch ceremony. To those who don’t share the culture of the American Indians, this can be a strange concept to understand; however, there are many benefits to the tradition such as gaining relationships and status and preventing abuse of power. The goods given away or destroyed at a Potlatch included money, canoes, flour, kettles, dishes, sewing machines, blankets, masks, and coppers.
