Product Description
This is an enrichment activity for high school regarding the Dawes Act. I use Dave Matthews Band and their song "Don't Drink the Water" to help students see an overall story of what happened to Native Americans. We listen to the song and I have them highlight specific lyrics or annotate the song. I also tell them to listen to the tone of the song (how it starts and ends).

Song available via YouTube:
Dave Matthews Band - Don't Drink The Water

Then I have included several primary source documents about the Dawes Act and students are to write one paragraph explaining the meaning of the song. Then the students are to write a second paragraph comparing and contrasting the primary source documents.
