Remix of: NC State Symbols Subject: Social Studies Level: Upper Primary Grades: Grade 4 Material Type: Homework/Assignment, Lesson, Lesson Plan, Reading Author: SHANE MENIUS Date Added: 05/24/2020 License: Creative Commons Attribution Language: English Comments Tsianina Tovar on Mar 22, 08:02am Evaluation Accuracy: Very Weak (0) There is minimal attempt to recognize the diversity, history of people or representation of the rich cultures of NC. The majority of resources and pictures are dated ad of "White" contributions to the state except for a few pictures which include a POC band-The Jets, Michael Jordan (a Black man who is a famous athlete) and a small section titled, "Indian" (under the letter I for A-Z) which is an offensive term to most Indigenous People. Currently, there are over 8 tribes and historically, there are 20+ indigenous tribes. Please reference the following for accurate representation of indigenous in the Americas: https://native-land.ca/ This resource reinforces White Colonialism-"the policy and practice of a power in extending control over weaker peoples or areas." This perpetuates "The Indian Problem" in the U.S. by providing minimal historical and current day accounts of their survival, existence, and contributions to the Americas.
