What has been the experience of American Indians

What has been the experience of American Indians

What has been the experience of American Indians

In approximately 800 well-chosen words critically analyze several of the following sources to answer this question: ?
Hernan Cortes, “Second Letter”
Bartolome de Las Casas on the Spanish Conquest*
Sherman Alexie poems [selection of poems are at your discretion] ?
Iris Engstrand, “How Cruel Were the Spaniards?” ?

John Hollitz, “The Truth About Textbooks: Indians and the Settlement of America” [CH 1]
You are strongly encouraged to use your lecture and discussion notes from class to help create your interpretation (argument). In your essay answer the question by exploring the life experiences and struggles of American Indians and other indigenous peoples we have examined. Use direct quotes from the texts to help craft your answer and to also support it. Make these selections wisely and include those that interest you most and help you answer the question. Remember, no argument will be convincing if there is no evidence to reinforce what is being stated. Format: Your essays should be typed, double spaced and in a size 12 font that is appropriate for a formal paper. Do not use generally informal words like I or me. Instead, let the sources do the talking. This should help to keep your paper formal. Example: Instead of: “I argue that the legacy of the United States in the 1950s is commonly overgeneralized and underappreciated. To me this era was not the epitome of homogenization and conformism but a time of resistance that culminated into revolt.” Do This: According to the primary sources obtained, read and analyzed the legacy of the United States is commonly overgeneralized and underappreciated. The sources make it apparent that this era was not the epitome of homogenization and conformism but a time of resistance that culminated into revolt.

Include your thesis statement in your introduction and underline it.

Citation Requirements: Be sure to ALWAYS cite the source after using direct quotes or paraphrases. Use the title of the source or the author’s name as a reference. Examples for primary sources: (“Second Letter”, p2) or (Las Casas, p1) Examples for secondary sources: (Hollitz, p23) or (Engstrand, p4) The purpose behind the citation is so the reader can always reference and shortly find where it is you received this information. If you are currently using a citation style in another course and would like to apply it to this essay that is fine with me. Just be sure it is an approved academic style (MLA, APA, Chicago etc.)
