The goal of this project is for a group of students to research a Native American tribe they may or not be familiar with. The overacrhing concept is that the Federal Government has allocated a large amount of money for Natvie Americans. The students need to research their tribe, write a paper depecting their history, hardships, wars, current situation, etc and defend why or why not they are entitled to this amount of money and what they would recommend how their tribe might best be served using the money. They present their findings to the class as well as create some sort of artwork or edible dish that best represents their tribe. I have had numerous groups actually make contact with members of their tribe to gain information for this project.
