Indigenous Peoples Vocabulary ~ Activity 2: Create a Unit Dictionary You will be doing research on a particular culture, its indigenous people and their connection to our global society First there are some terms you need to be familiar with: Indigenous Globalization Refugee Indigenous People Race Culture Ancestor Custom Native Citizen Belief Ceremony Immigrant Government Community Assimilation Complete the Unit Dictionary Graphic Organizer - Include:
Definition as it relates to people or indigenous people

Today you will explore Indigenous Peoples! It will be your job to Identify, locate, explore, appreciate, and advocate for Indigenous Peoples!

Mapping Indigenous Peoples ~ Activity 5 With over 370 million indigenous people (over 5,000 groups) spread out among 70 different countries, learning about indigenous people can be a bit overwhelming. Not only are their population numbers constantly changing, but, also the places where they live differ and change. Indigenous people live all over the globe, from rainforests to the deserts, high in the mountains to along the river valleys, and in the Artic to deep in the outback of Australia. The next activity will have you and your partner breakdown the list and organize some of the indigenous groups into a map of their native land to gain a better understanding of the location of where indigenous people live.
Instructions Using the resources below, with your partner, you will be responsible for locating a list of Indigenous Peoples in a particular area you are assigned.
Draft Day Who will be your 'MAN'? Which group of people do you think NEED to be heard? Which Indigenous Peoples story, culture, and life will you share? Who will you select?
Create a group of 4 people (from the same region).
Today you will be participating in a draft to pick the indigenous tribe your group will be studying for the next several weeks. Come up with a list of your top 5 prospects (groups). Your group will pick a playing card and the draft picking order will be determined by the card your group picks. If your 1st pick is gone you will try for your 2nd pick. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Section One: Basic Information READ THE DIRECTIONS COMPLETELY!!!! Over the next few days, you will be working on the basic information about your Indigenous Peoples Group. You will be displaying the information you learn about your tribe on a tri-fold display board. (see example below) This part of the display board will provide your audience with the name of your group, origin of the name, population, and regions inhabited, languages, religion, a visual, notable members, and other related ethnic groups. In order to complete this, you will need to complete the following steps!
Part 1 Research STEPS: 1. Research your indigenous peoples group and fill in the organizer with the correct information for your tribe. 2. Complete the rough draft of the map of your tribes inhabited countries.
Part 2 ~ Display Boxes and Map In part 2 you will be creating the text boxes with information on your tribe. YOU MUST USE THE TEMPLATES provided below for this information. These boxes will be cut out neatly and matted on the same color construction paper throughout the project. These pieces of information will be displayed on your tri-fold display for the Indigenous Peoples Fair. They must look professional.
End Product: When complete, this basic information section should have 3 different itemsthat will eventually go on your tri-fold display. The three items should look like the picture below.
Use the Links below to fill information (Templates)
*At the bottom of the subtitle information template there is a space for flags. The flags you copy and paste in should be of the current countries your tribe resides in. Once printed off in black and white you must color the flags with colored pencil. See example. Your tribe may reside in many countries or only one.
Continent Map ~ Your final draft of the map of the continent your group lives on should be done professionally and colored pencil should be used to add pizzazz. You must use white copy paper to draw your map on. Be sure to include the following:
