What does it mean to be Native American?
This is a question that appears to have a very simple answer. Ask most students today and they will respond, "Those are the people that the pilgrims had the first Thanksgiving dinner with at Plymouth Rock." Look in many of the social studies and history books in our state's schools and this is pretty much what you will find. There may be a few special Native Americans mentioned, some battles scattered here and there but does anyone know the real history and culture of the Native American people. Some younger students have even questioned if Native Americans are stil alive!!! In this project we wil look at some books dealing with Native American culture and history in America and in the state of North Carolina. Let's first take a look a video and some quick facts!
