The Pocahontas Paradox, Pewewardy, Cornel. “The Pocahontas Paradox: A Cautionary Tale For Educators.” Journal of Navajo Education, University of Kansas, School of Education, Fall/Winter 1996/97, http://www.hanksville.org/storytellers/pewe/writing/Pocahontas.html. Accessed 21 April 2018. In English class, we read “The Pocahontas Paradox “ and discussed the author's argument that the portrayal of Native Americans in common media is harmful to children and students should be taught to recognize and critically analyze the stereotypes shown. This reading analyzed the portrayal of Native Americans in the media, and how that affects Native people. This article fits within the pillar of “Communicate Ideas” because it explains how the idea of Native American stereotypes were ingrained in our culture. Furthermore, our discussion of “The Pocahontas Paradox” supported the concept of this pillar in that it created a space for me to talk with my peers about the article, and what it meant to each of us. This source addresses my overarching question in that it shows that Native Americans have been degradingly portrayed by the white people in power, causing many self-image issues. It also connects to English because we analyzed her writing, which is an English skill.
