3. Read "Native reservations" and keep it as info material. Reservations are mentioned in many Native writings. It is a quick overview of what Native reservations are, and also includes a map. The text around the map is impossible read, but all you need to pay attention to is the large map and the smaller ones across the top of the page. I am sharing this as a means for you to get a sense of how Native peoples were displaced and pushed westward across the country. You will see how the land occupied by Natives has dwindled since the arrival of Europeans. I often hear from people that Indians should be thankful that the U.S. gave them "all that land for free," but this map puts that idea into perspective.

4. Read the story "The Three Brothers". It is an example of "traditional" storytelling, which I purposely do not use for this class. My reason is that I don't trust most of the sources for these kinds of stories, and I try to be respectful to the original intentions of them. But, in this case I'd like you to write a brief paragraph on what you think the "meaning" or "purpose" of the story is.

5. Read the story, The Killing Of A State Cop" by Simon Ortiz. As you read make note of any ways that you think the author might be including moments of re-appropriation, re-representation or Indian 101. Make a list of 4-6 examples and hand in on Mon.

Thanks. Be safe.
