Working in groups, students first research tribal traditions and turbulent relations with the U.S. government (including mapping, timeline, and art activities), then tell their “leader’s” story at a culminating powwow followed by a Socratic debriefing. The substantial teacher’s guide provides objectives, complete procedures, biographical readings and other reproducible handouts, and assessment tips. Student guides contain a background essay, a project checklist, and graphic organizers. The simulation can be run either as a five-day unit or a 12-day unit.
