In this lesson, students learn about the Indigenous peoples of Oregon’s distinct ways of knowing and living, how colonization damaged Indigenous lands and natural resources, and what can be done to start to repair some of the damage.
Step 1 - Inquire: Students learn about colonization and the dire impacts that it had and continues to have on Native American tribes in Oregon.
Step 2 - Investigate: Students discover which Native American tribe is closest to their community and research the tribe to learn about their history and culture, as well as what life is like for tribal members today.
Step 3 - Inspire: Students reflect on sustainability or environmental problems facing the Native American tribe, generate ideas for how to help support the tribe’s sustainability and environmental goals, and share the information with others.
Students will be able to:
- Compare and contrast Native American Nations on a map prior to colonization and now.
- Understand how Indigenous land and natural resources have been damaged.
- Recognize and discuss ways to honor and respect Indigenous peoples’ right to maintain their traditions and ways of life.
- Explain how they can start to repair the damage done to the land and natural resources.
