Brown University’s Hafenrefer Museum o Anthropology welcomes you to our program,
Beyond Coybows and Indians
: Where We Bring the Museum to You!
The Haenreer Museum collects and maintains over 00,000 artiacts o human cultures rom aroundthe world. We have oered experiential educational programs to the public or over thirty years. Throughhands-on object-based activities and inquiry-based teaching, our programs educate students and teachersabout people and cultures worldwide. Through our Culture CaraVan program, we deliver the world’scultures with objects rom our amous collections right to your classroom!
About These Materials
The ollowing curricular materials have been developed in cooperative consultation with HaenreerMuseum sta, and past and present Native American students at Brown rom a variety o majors andtribal aliations. The materials recognize and enorce the importance o providing teachers and studentswith appropriate background inormation, project and activity suggestions, and resource materials relatedto Native peoples. Content ocuses on American Indian groups rom the Northern Great Plains region, andspecically on the tribal groups known as the “Sioux” and their social, political and cultural experiencesrom the era o treaty-making with the United States government to today.These materials will be urther developed with educators who have visited the museum with theirstudents, and with American Indian educators working in tribal and non-tribal settings — suggestionsregarding educational content and cultural perspective are welcomed. The current version ocuses oninterdisciplinary learning and provides some links with curriculum standards used in Rhode Island andMassachusetts. Presented in a personal narrative style, based on the lie and amily o Jennier EdwardsWeston, a young Lakota woman and member o the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and recent graduate o Brown University –the unit emphasizes contemporary Lakota lie, highlighting cultural, educational andpolitical experiences.This curriculum is ocused almost entirely on the present. Brie mention is made o earlier periods inLakota history, such as the early Reservation period (late 00s) and the ederal treaty-making andremoval policies (early to mid-00s). Setting the narrative in the present helps students visualize Indianpeoples and cultures as contemporaries o modern American lie. Suggested activities, vocabulary and abibliography accompany the unit. We hope these materials help you to reinorce the positive imaging o American Indians, and to teach your students that Native peoples continue to live and thrive incontemporary American society.
Vocabulary words are in bold and a listing can be ound on page 39.
