Tutor description

Unitas has a parade in honor of Columbus Day each year. Most years, local Native American groups have issued protests against this parade because they feel that not only did Columbus not discover America, but the celebration of the day ignores the centuries of oppression and mistreatment of Native American peoples. This year, one of the Native American groups has asked the town for permission to put up an educational display and information on their point of view in the town center on Columbus Day. The mayor is considering this request and has asked for your feedback regarding the background of the Native American group’s request. • Briefly discuss the history of how Native Americans have been treated by dominant groups in the United States since European settlement. • How does this history relate to the way that certain Native American groups have protested Columbus Day? • Do you think the mayor should support the request of the Native American group? Why or why not?

Every year the local Native Americans have issued protests against this parade becausethey feel that not only did Columbus not discover America, but the celebration of the day ignores the centuries of oppression and mistreatment of Native American peoples.Native Americans have suffered at the hand of European settlers that came to America and seized land from the natives. Native Americans were forced to give up their homes and placed on reservations where they could no longer prosper. Native American began to die of diseases brought over to the country and many became addicted to alcohol. Just like any other race dominated by another race that find they are superior, the Native American faced great discrimination and pain and suffering at the hands of European settlers. While many Americans are proud of their European heritage to the Native American this represents the end of their traditions and way of life and the senseless death of thousands of Native Americans fighting this unwanted invasion of settlers.
