Ten Things You Should Know About American Indian History
A recent anthology titled “Why You Can’t Teach United States History without American Indians” makes the powerful argument that the experiences of indigenous North Americans are essential for understanding the history of our nation. This presentation will discuss ten key points that can help us see the centrality of Native Americans to the American experience, while also working to dispel common misperceptions about indigenous peoples. Dr. Hudson received her PhD in American Studies from Yale University and is now an Associate Professor in the Department of History at Texas A&M University.
