Product Description
This product contains four nonfiction reading passages on different events in Native American (specifically Lakota) history.
Topics include: Chief Red Cloud, The Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851, and two accounts on The Fetterman Massacre.

Each passage is 250-300 words long and comes with 4-7 test prep questions that are aligned to 4th grade informational reading common core standards. These passages are perfect for test prep, reading centers, homework, and assessment.
Questions cover: Inferencing, Sequencing, Context Clues, Genre, Cause and Effect, Text Structure, Point of View, Firsthand and Secondhand Accounts.

Additionally, two passages - "The Fetterman Massacre" and "The Trap" - cover the same event from two different point of views. I have included an extra worksheet that will allow the students to compare and contrast a firsthand and secondhand account.

This product was created by a Lakota teacher currently teaching on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. I have used all four passages in my 4th grade classroom and the students have loved them. With these passages, I had 3 goals:
1. Present a decolonized view of Native American history.
2. Give students a chance to read about their own culture and history.
3. Get students excited about reading.

Feel free to use them in your classroom to give your students a look into a culture that is often overlooked and sadly thrown to the wayside in our contemporary classrooms.
