Do we use the term “Indians” or “Native Americans?” These are labels that have grouped all the pre-Columbian indigenous people into one large homogenous cultural group. However, there are major differences between each group.

For this assignment, choose at least two different Indian groups. If you wish, you can choose groups from this list, but feel free to choose others from your own research: Olmec, Inca, Aztecs, Maya, Arawak, Carib, Chibcha, Paez, Taino, Motilon (Bari), Iroquois, Huron, Mohawk, and Seminole.

For your two groups: compare their pre-Columbian society, achievements, lifestyles, and their political relationship(s) with other Indian groups as applicable.

Explain in general your groups’ situations in the times prior to 1492.


Using primary sources (https://teachinghistory.org/best-practices/using-p… (Links to an external site.)) , compare and contrast the experiences of at least 2 of the Thirteen original colonies. In your comparison find and review the original charter of each colony (see Avalon (https://avalon.law.yale.edu/subject_menus/statech…. (Links to an external site.)) and Library of Congress (http://www.loc.gov/teachers/classroommaterials/pre… (Links to an external site.)) website links below), paying attention to its stated purpose and objectives. How are the charters similar or different? When comparing the two charters (and colonial experience based on these two charters), consider: how the charter helped determine who had power (and who did not), how the charter influenced the growth of the colony, and how it impacted interactions with the Native Americans? What can we learn from these similarities and/or differences?

Note: For instance, you might compare Plymouth and Jamestown, or Georgia and Rhode Island. Charters can be accessed at: https://avalon.law.yale.edu/subject_menus/statech…. (Links to an external site.) or http://www.loc.gov/teachers/classroommaterials/pre… (Links to an external site.)

Note: A primary source is a document or artifact created at the time the event took place (such as the charters themselves). Your answer should use the charters, but can also use other primary sources (optional).


Review the events from 1754 (the French and Indian War) to 1775 (the Battles at Lexington and Concord). Seeing how the colonists reacted so strongly to the Stamp Act, at what point from 1754 to 1776 was the “point of no return?” What event — the Boston Massacre, Tea Party, or the Stamp Act — caused the colonists to firmly resolve to fight rather than live under British rule?


How well do art, theater, and Disney communicate history? While the scenes painted may be inspiring and patriotic, do they need to also be historically accurate? Reflect on such contemporary pieces as the play Hamilton and the painting of Washington crossing the Delaware by Emanuel Leutze and explain the advantages or disadvantages of such portrayals.
