1.  Hierarchical Structure – uses a top-down presentation of the literature, ending with your proposed study
2. Flowchart model – literature unfolds from left to right, with the farthest right section advancing a proposed study

OPEN “the dispossession of the First Nations” first , and follow this

After watching the documentary film and reading McDonnell carefully, discuss the centrality of land allotment in the policy of assimilation of Indigenous Nations into white culture and the propagation of capitalism, an economic system that is based on private individual property, as opposed to communal property (i.e. land owned by a group, instead of particular individuals, as is the case with Indigenous peoples).

In your answer, stay focused on the centrality of land in the preservation of Indigenous culture. In other words, Indigenous cultures, in particular, their economic systems and spirituality, are very much tied to the land: when Indigenous nations are dispossessed from their land, their cultural identity is jeopardized, due to the interruption of certain ancestral practices.

European Colonialism in the Americas

READ CAREFULY THE ATTATCHED FILED : European Colonialism. follow that guide .

Watch the interview to Howard Zinn, and carefully read Zinns chapter on European colonialism, and Montejos poem. Take notes while you read, capturing Zinns main line of thinking from beginning to end: what is he arguing? What is his main message? What evidence does he present? How does he argue his case?
Do not focus exclusively on the qualitative data on how Indigenous peoples were massacred: the goal of this assignment is not to talk about European brutality, but to reflect on the uses of history to justify a genocide.
