Culture-based lessons on Flint Hills Native People
"The history of the land on which we stand is ours, too." - Jaune Quick-to-See Smith
Our general K-12 Flint Hills lessons contain about 16 lessons on Native Americans - from the Newspaper in Education-The Oklahoman series, from National Museum of American Indian, and other sources. These are excellent, but we also especially recommend the following tribal-specific lessons, created in collaboration with the Flint Hills Map & Education Program, to represent cultures in the Flint Hills.
Osage Nation K-12 Lessons (click here): "The story of the Osage is a story of our people, but also a story of the land, of survival and spirituality, of family and community, and of America and the human experience."
The Kanza: Who, Where, and When - Inquiry Unit - Overview of the history of the Kanza people (middle & high school level): Activities include timeline, mapping, milestone events, and reading brief biographies of notable Kanza people – followed by Who’s Who Game.
