When the rest of the eastern world was enjoying an explosion of culture, literature, and freedom, the Native Americans were fighting to stay alive. When others were considering ways of moving up in society, the Native Americans were watching their children being taken away by the U.S. Government so that they may be Americanized. Follow the struggles of the Native Americans through this timeline and give your students a true sense of what human rights are and what these proud individuals went through to maintain them.
Please note that this timeline is intended for students in upper elementary to middle school. It makes use of period language and makes references to groups of people using the accepted terminology from quotes and manuscripts of the period. To stay true and provide an accurate representation of the period based on the manuscripts of that time we have not changed the language or the terminology from the original text. Otherwise, Indigenous people are referred to as Native Americans when the wording is produced by ETC writers and not derived from original text.
The timescale on this timeline is the same as our Timeline of American History (TL-029), allowing you to use both timelines to view cause and effect relationships.
As with all our timelines this too is constructed from material that does not need to be laminated. This timeline will stand up to more than just the wear of everyday use. Constructed from specialized paper it is 100% waterproof, chemical spill resistant, UV protected against fading, tear and crease resistant.
Dimensions H x L:
18" x 9 ft.; 46 centimeters x 2.75 meters
