Product Description
Although this lesson was produced with a focus on Colorado History, the events and themes it covers are so common in the historic plight of Native American tribes that the lesson can be used more universally to talk about the impact of manifest destiny and U.S. expansion in the West. This lesson begins with video guide questions for an outstanding 30-minute documentary on Ute culture and history produced by PBS and History Colorado. The documentary focuses on the impacts of cultural and economic conflict between the Ute and Anglo settlers. Topics include Chief Ouray, Indian Agent Nathanial Meeker, the Meeker Massacre, the Dawes Allotment Act, and forced relocation of Ute children in boarding schools across the nation among others. The documentary ends with the suggestion that the Ute have a bright future ahead. So, after completing the video guide, students visit the Southern Ute Tribe website to find evidence supporting or refuting that claim. The lesson concludes with a class discussion about the future of the Ute (and other Native American Tribes). This lesson is a good option for an emergency sub plan as long as students have Internet access in the classroom.
