“The Education of Little Tree”, February 28th, 2018 Carter, Forrest. The Education of Little Tree. University of New Mexico Press, 2010, Delacorte Press, 1976, http://hanginwithmscooper. weebly.com/uploads/3/8/3/1/383166 93/little%C2%A0tree.pdf. Accessed 21 April 2018. In English class, we read the first four chapters of “The Education of Little Tree”. This book was written from the perspective of a young Native American boy, but subliminally reinforces racial stereotypes. This reading fits within the pillar of “Investigate the World” because it gives an example of someone in history trying to justify his view of Native Americans being inferior to white people, even if it isn’t obvious. Furthermore, this reading supports the concept of this pillar in that it shows what life was like for Native Americans during the time period, and shows the discrimination and hardships that they faced constantly. This source addresses my overarching question in that it provides an example of how colonization ingrained in society that Native Americans are “less” than white people.
