Sandra:
Kicking Bear's "Battle of Little Big Horn" is part of the Selected American
Indian Artifacts set of the Multicultural Art Print Series distributed by
Crystal Productions (800) 255-8629. It has a little background information.
We are developing links for the work for the online version on ArtsEdNet,
and I'll try to post it to you as soon as it has been edited. Something on
the Internet is out of whack, or I'd point you to the exact page on
ArtsEdNet.
This sounds like a fabulous course....

I teach a high school level Humanities course that is focused on
American
Art and History, and we are beginning a unit on the activities and ethics
of the late 19th century Indian wars, specifically on the Battle of Little
Big Horn. I wish to make it very clear that our viewpoint is that it's
essential for our students (all students) to understand what our country
did to the Native peoples for the sake of progress. They need to know
the truth. We can't change it, but we can do a better job of educating
people so that we don't continue to discriminate and decimate the Native
populations.

Our students will be doing a research project on Custer and the great
Sioux and Cheyenne chiefs of Little Big Horn. Are there any educators
out there who would be interested in helping our students do some
Internet research?
Perhaps a teacher who would help set something up where his or her
students, preferably of Sioux or Cheyenne background, would answer
questions from my students? I'm open to suggestions. Are there any
museum or national park links we could make for research?

Hope to hear from someone. Thanks.
