How the World Uniquely Begins Native American myths and the Christian Bible both offer stories about how the world began..

Jenny Tone-Pah-Hote’s presentation focused on the development of art and dance in the Kiowa tribe of Oklahoma. Through the use of art and dance, the native american peoples of the Kiowa tribe have long explained their histories, told their stories, and created biographical accounts of their lives. These forms of expression made for the basis of the Kiowa culture and identity, centuries before extensive contact was made with the european colonists. Traditionally, the “kiowa ideal male” was a strong and independent warrior, which was replicated and shown by the native art. As times began to change, what it meant to “be a Kiowa” was also altered as norms began to shift.
Education is what gives us the ability to make something of ourselves. Education is a right, some many people today still have to fight for. Melba in Warriors Don 't Cry fought for her education day and night, inside and outside of Central High School.

America is known for many things, such as its history, music, food, clothing style, education, and for being known as the Land of opportunities. Since 1765, The U.S. has been fighting for its freedom to get to where Americans are today and to give the Americans the future they deserve. The most recognized and valued treasure this country has respected for many years is the Pledge of Allegiance and the glory of having to stand up and show the pride there is.

The pledge can mean many different things to many different people but it will always be known as a symbol of justice and indivisibility.
The Traditions, Silence, and Life Within Everyone has new things to listen and learn from on a daily basis. Silence is important in both, but to ask questions is more important.

Jay Rosentein took a look at the long time practice of honoring Native American’s as mascots and team names in sports whether professional levels or college teams. He gives us insight that it is not only about using the natives as mascots but the issue at hand of racism, minority representation and stereotypes. This film is more than the practice of utilizing Indians as mascots, it is about culture identity and how we should all change to make a difference. In this documentary we follow Charlene Teters, the leader some have called her the Rosa Parks of Native Americans and her struggles to protect her identity and cultural symbols.
