The Indigenization of America’s Master Narrative
Closing Lecture Remarks
Historical evidence demands we take a close, critical look at the historical and cultural consequences produced by the domination of the Master Narrative.
The historical case studies in this lecture are not in themselves an attack on the Master Narrative.  Their existence, however, does highlight the many contradictions ignored by the false assumptions spread by the Master Narrative: this land was unoccupied and European colonists put it to good use for you and me. Historical accounts of the past, like the ones outlined in this unit lecture, destabilize the “normalcy” – disrupt the assumed supremacy – of the Master Narrative.
Now is your opportunity to demonstrate your ability to utilize course concepts and incorporate case studies in producing knowledge through cultural criticism in writing.
Most unit lectures close with this same class discussion format.  If you read and closely follow all the instructions for this class discussion, you should be able to do well here on out.  I will be leaving you feedback and a grade for this assignment.  It is important you review my feedback so you can address any issues in the next assignment.
I look forward to reading each of your posts and comments.  Contact me ahead of time if you need an extension.  I accept late posts but not late comments or self-reflections.  Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, doubts, or need additional assistance.

Overview and Criteria
Post by Thursday, Reply by Saturday
The three (3) steps to complete this assignment are explained below in more detail, but here they are in a nutshell:
Pick 2+ course concepts.
Answer 2+ question(s) or prompts.
Leave 2+ substantive comments.
There are two (2) dimensions that add up to 30 total points possible from this assignment.
Your Post : 25 Points Max
2+ Comments : 10 Points Max 
You’ll be graded on your ability to utilize course concepts to critically reflect on the unit’s lecture material.   You must closely follow guidelines to earn maximum points.

10 Points: Peer Comments
Each comment you leave is worth up to 5 points (depending on quality of post).  Being nice and respectful is important, but it doesn’t get you all the points. Your comments need to be substantive and expand on the conversation or original post in a meaningful way. 
Comments should contain at least one of the following:
Comments should provide new information about the original post (“substantive”).
Elaborate on a point made by the Poster or someone else on the thread (“expand”).

In other words, compliments and salutations do not count as satisfactory comments. 

Pro Tips
What mistake will cost you the most points?

Use of in-text citations for all prompts is required.  Every student should develop the habit of attributing information to sources in college-level writing.  You can use either APA or MLA style for in-text citations.  An example of citing lectures in your text is as follows: (Fuentes, “Unit #: Name of Lecture.”).  Both the green number and lecture title must be changed to the appropriate source for credit.

Don’t want to lose your work?
Copy and paste your posts on Canvas, but write them elsewhere (WordLinks to an external site., GoogleLinks to an external site., etc.).  Canvas logs users out with inactivity.  If this happens, you aren’t alerted and your work will be lost even if you try to “save” or hit “submit.”

Continuing the Conversation
You have a voice; what’s your say?
Guidance: Select course concepts (2+) introduced in this unit to answer two (2) or more of the below question(s) or prompts according Professor Fuentes’ lecture materials. You can also incorporate your own personal experiences or recent events, but there has to be a clear connection to concepts and case studies.*
When you think of the Master Narrative, what aspects of American History do you think about?
Discuss Eurocentric views and practices toward Native Americans (Ch. 2).
The Master Narrative is represented in society as historically accurate, yet what does historical evidence suggest?  What are ways the Master Narrative erases the indigenous aspect of U.S. history?
Analyze “savagery” and “Trail of Tears” in “American progress” (Ch. 4).
How do counter-narratives presented in the case studies complicate your own awareness of American History?

Discuss the “Indian Question” and U.S. domination of indigenous life (Ch. 9).
What is another example of a counter-narrative that describes the socio-political conditions of oppressed groups, their lived experiences, and stories of liberation?
Add your own link to an IG post, tweet, or Tik Tok and explain how it is an example of indigenization or a counter-narrative; OR Write your own question and incorporate course concepts to explain the importance behind your question (and the value of the potential answer).
*No external sources.  Base your response on the lecture materials provided and, as an add-on, you can tie in your own personal experiences, stories, and examples.
