  • What comes to your mind when you think about the Native American Indians?
  • This piece is very different from the one we just saw. Because it is much more violent, and contains a lot of action.
  • The Indians viewed the buffalo as a gift sent from their Creator, because not only did it provide food for the tribe, but it also contained materials that could be utilized as clothing and shelter.
  • Now that you have learned a little more about these people, is it easier to imagine the devastation they endured in the Spanish Mission system?
