Each of the readings for this week were written by Native American people. Think about what they have in common and what their differences are. You may discuss those things, but I also want you to talk about the ways that you see the tension between the dominant white culture and the subordinate Native American culture playing out in the texts of this week’s writings. What do these writers and their writings have to say about the way America is developing as a nation? Do the authors embrace or resist the dominant culture’s values?
