The Native American Tribe Report Assignment
Select one particular Native American tribe living in the Pacific Northwest. Write a report on the pre-contact cultural aspects of that particular tribe. See a list of tribes under the "Selecting a Tribe" tab of this guide (or on your assignment sheet) for ideas.
Include the following information in your report:
- Cultural Group (Coastal, Plateau, etc.)
- Tools and Implements
- Major Language Group
- Types of Shelter
- One Legend
As an alternative you may research and write a report on one of the following topics: Art, mythology/religion, women's roles, men's roles, etc.
You will need to include 5 sources (encyclopedia, internet, book, periodical, etc.). The internet will count as one source so you will need to use other sources.
