Description

This document-based instructional manual is intended to give teachers and students greater understanding of the Seneca Nation of Indians (SNI), their history, world view, and concerns. The SNI is a federally recognized sovereign nation, having a government-to-government relationship with the U.S., set forth in treaties (1784 to 1794). This manual throws light on the Seneca experience from after the American Revolution to today. Its 2 goals are to provide accurate information about the rich Native American history of western New York and to encourage teachers to incorporate the information provided into the standard American history curriculum and participation in government classes taught in grades 7-12. It contains 32 documents, 11 maps, 51 illustrations, questions at the end of each chapter with suggestions for further reading, and lists museums with excellent collections of Seneca material culture, major Native American periodicals, and recommended websites.
