Description

Reading, Writing, and Speaking with Shakespeare at the Heart

Presented by: Smithsonian American Art Museum

Facilitated by: Elizabeth Dale-Deines, Corinne Viglietta

George Catlin’s paintings of American Indians seem to capture the different ways of life of Native Americans in the 1830s. Incorporating them into your classroom activities can be a tempting way to check the “analyze primary sources” box while also checking the “art integration” box. But whose stories and values are actually represented in these works? How might we tell more complete narratives in our classrooms to share multiple perspectives and gain a more nuanced and authentic understanding of this time and the peoples represented? NMAI’s Native Knowledge 360⁰ online lesson provides perspectives from Native American community members, documents, maps, images, and activities to help students and teachers understand an important and difficult chapter in the history both of Native Nations and the United States.
