The main purpose of this publication is to provide current, accurate information to teachers and students about the Indian tribes living in the state of Oregon. Too often information about Indian tribes is stereotypic, inaccurate, and outdated. A number of Indian tribes have worked on the development of this document, using the "Oregon Indians: Culture, History, and Current Affairs- An Atlas and Introduction," a publication approved by the tribes of Oregon. It is planned that this information will be updated and revised as needed. The guidelines in this report were chosen to prevent teachers from teaching stereotypic lessons about Indian culture. These guidelines include: (1) Concentrate on the contemporary Indian and community rather than historical facts; (2) Focus on the Tribal group nearest the school. An understanding of the local Indian community will give a better perspective on generalizations made about Indians regionally and nationally; (3) Attempt to deal with real life, including controversial issues; and (4) Concentrate more on the processes of Indian life, rather than the products. The materials included in "Indians in Oregon Today" align to the Oregon Social Sciences Academic Content Standards and Benchmark Standards. Appended are: (1) American Indian/Alaskan Native U.S. Historical Timeline; (2) A Glossary of Terms; (3) Specific Curriculum References; (4) Other Resources; and (5) Oregon Indian Treaties. Contains vocabulary activities, questions for discussion, and a listing of Oregon, and Tribal web sites.
