AIS 160 – Sections A and L – Spring 2016
Please select one of the options below – you only have to do one, not both!
Option 1: Indian Country Today online newspaper project
Visit the “Indian Country Today” website, a source for news and information across
contemporary Indian Country. The website can be located here:
http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/ and is accessible for free.
Using the website, search and find 2-3 published news stories that are of interest to you.
These articles can come from any area on the website, so if you are interested in “Arts
and Entertainment,” “Politics, “Health,” etc., feel free to browse those areas. Part of this
project is to get you to explore issues that are of interest to you but are affecting Indian
After you select your articles, I want you to explain why they are significant to Indian
Country. For example, and article in the “Health” section on diabetes may be important
because recent studies have shown that there is a 10% rise in childhood diabetes. But
further elaborate on why that rise may be significant (how does it affect the community,
what is being done, what does this say about the state of the community, etc.). You are
not required to research outside of these articles, but if you find it is necessary, you are
encouraged to do so – just make sure to include any additional sources in your works
Give a brief summary of the 2-3 articles that you have selected, and then discuss their
significance to Indian Country. The finished product will be 2-3 typed, double-spaced,
Times New Roman, 12pt. font pages. If you feel that you can complete this assignment
with 1 article, feel free to do so. But remember – you must have at least 2 full pages.
Don’t rely on just summarizing the articles. The main idea is to get you to discuss why
the article you’re reporting on is significant.
Finally, please attach a works cited page that lists the article(s) that you used for this
project. Use whichever citation format you prefer. Please make sure that you cite these
articles and include the URL so that, if needed, I can access them.
Option 2: Paths of Life Exhibit Reflection
Visit the Arizona State Museum located on campus. The Museum is located just NE of
the Main Gate at Park Avenue and University Boulevard. The physical address is 1013 E.
University Boulevard. You can reach the museum by phone at 520-621-6302 or can visit
the museum website at: http://www.statemuseum.arizona.edu/. Admission is free with
your student ID. Museum hours are Monday through Saturday from 10am to 5pm.
Every student in my section will need to schedule a time to go to the Museum and walk
through the “Paths of Life Exhibit: American Indians of the Southwest.” You can also
substitute this exhibit with the ongoing “The Pottery Project” exhibit. Both are, again,
free admission if you bring your CatCard – which means you can bring friends if you
would rather experience this with others.
It is very important that students at the University of Arizona are aware that there are 23
Indian tribes within the state of Arizona. While our regular lectures will not cover this, it
is important that you become familiar with some of these tribes. Please explore the exibit
and learn about the different tribes represented. As described by museum curators, “This
exhibition takes an innovative look at ten American Indian cultures of Arizona and
northwest Mexico: the Seri, Tarahumara, Yaqui, O'odham, Colorado River Yumans,
Southern Paiute, Pai, Apache, Hopi and Navajo. For each group, a theme of special
cultural relevance is traced through three sections—Origins, History, and Life Today.”
Once you have explored the exhibit, reflect upon what you saw. What did you find
interesting? What did you learn? Is there anything that you did not like about the exhibit
(in example, perhaps you found that there were not enough descriptions of materials or
artifacts and you could not identify them)? The purpose of this assignment is not to make
you take notes while walking through the museum. I want you to enjoy your experience
and then reflect upon it. Please then write a 2-3 page, double-spaced, 12 pt. Times New
Roman font, 1” margin paper in which you reflect upon the exhibit(s) you chose to look
at. This is a reflection, so there is no “wrong” answer. However, please proof read and
edit your papers and write them as if you were presenting this paper to the Museum for
