Product Description
If you are reading Ta-Na-E-Ka by Mary Whitebird, use this 15-question, multiple-choice test to make sure students are following along.

See if you can find a copy of the story online (several pdfs were available in 2015). Whether you're teaching female lit, minority lit, or American Indian (Native American) lit, this story works... just know that Mary Whitebird was not an actual Indian herself, nor is she a woman. In fact, if you read a bit about the author and the history of the story, you'll see it probably should not be a representative story about a cultural group, but that makes it all the more interesting to critical-reading teachers.

If you're sick of trying to explain why Fool's Crow is appropriate and wondering where Silko is coming from, maybe this is a decent alternative. Or it's good as comparative: the "real" authors versus those who write about a culture from the outside.

The story seems to appear in middle school anthologies, but it could be used with older kids. The age mentioned in the story is eleven.

Oh, and here's why you should by from TPT authors rather than rely on the big guys: the McGraw-Hill website published an inaccurate biography about the author, unless Wikipedia is wrong. It's kind of a fun mystery. http://treasures.macmillanmh.com/ohio/students/grade6/book1/unit5/ta-na-e-ka/author/mary-whitebird
