Plains Indians Presentation




They were not afraid to face reality and define problems.

Slide 17



This presentation summarizes some of the ideals, beliefs, and values of traditional Indian ways (ways before the Europeans colonized America).

These are the values we need to hold on to if we wish to remain Indian people.

These are the values we must build upon if we wish to grow as Indian people.

These are the values we must spread to our non-Indian brothers and sisters if America is going to grow as a country.

Overview of Methods & Sources


One of the references used to prepare this presentation consisted of a research project (Becker, Poupart, & Martinez, 2002).

The purpose of the project was to reflect on traditional American Indian ways.

To achieve this objective, several elders were interviewed.

Elders represented Ojibwe, Lakota, Dakota, and Ho-Chunk nations.

Both men and women, born during World War II, participated.

Participants chose to remain anonymous.

When a quote from one of these elders is used in this presentation, the quote will be marked “Anonymous.” Thank You!
