5 Fauxkooshketball – Native American Unit

6 Rules of this highly athletic game I will ask one player on your team a question. ONLY THAT STUDENT MAY ANSWER THE QUESTION WITHOUT ANY INPUT FROM HIS/HER TEAMMATES. That student will have TEN seconds to answer the question. If the designated answerer responds correctly, s/he gets a chance to score a trash basket with the fauxkooshketball. If s/he misses, no point is granted to your team.

7 There are bonus questions throughout the game. Anyone, on either team, may answer. I will subtract points from your team if anyone complains, “oh that’s too easy” (or anything like that) when the other team gets asked a question Rules of this extreme sport In order for a shot to count, the shooter must be wearing the team’s headband in some fashion

8 The point values 1 point: Shot made from beyond the first line (1 fauxkooshketball) 2 points * : Single shot made from beyond the second line 2.5 points * : Double shot made from beyond the first line (two fauxkooshketballs – one in each hand, at the same time). 5 points * : Double shot made from beyond the second line * The N.A.A.P.S.A.F has decided to take dramatic efforts to increase the number of two handed shot attempts

9 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit In 1969, a group of American Indians “claimed” Alcatraz Island. What was their justification for claiming Alcatraz in the “name of all Americans”? Indians claimed the island under the Fort Laramie 1868 Sioux Treaty enabling Sioux Indians to take possession of surplus federal land.

10 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Why was the Chicago World’s Fair called “the Columbian Exposition”? It was held in 1893, one year after the quadri-centennial (400 year anniversary) of Columbus’ historic “discovery”.

11 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit In his journal, Columbus wrote the following description of the natives whom he encountered, “it seemed to me that they were a people very deficient in everything”. What does Columbus mean by this statement? They had no significant weapons, clothes or items of value to trade with Columbus’ men.

12 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Name two accusations made against Columbus’ men regarding their involvement in the murder of the Tainos Indians. (1) They did the dirty work (raped women, cut hands off Tainos who didn’t deliver enough gold, whipped Tainos who didn’t work hard enough in the mines); (2) They could have said no (priests like de las Casas refused to mistreat Indians and spoke out about it)

13 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Name two accusations made against the System of Empire regarding its involvement in the murder of the Tainos Indians. (1)It was the fault of a system that valued property over people (2) European system only saw white Christians as full human beings (so it was okay to take them as slaves)

14 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Name two accusations made against Columbus regarding his involvement in the murder of the Tainos Indians. (1) He kidnapped Indians on his first voyage back to Spain (2) he made it clear that his only goal was to find gold and demanded that Tainos collect gold for him (and if they did not, he demanded that their hands be chopped off) (3) ordered his men to “spread terror” among the Tainos when there were rumors of resistance

15 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Bonus Q: Father de las Casas wrote of the story of Friar Antonio de Montesinos, who publicly declared in a sermon that he “was a voice crying in the desert” and told the people of his church that “it is time for you to open your hearts”. What was his sermon designed to accomplish? To convince the Spaniards that it was not right to kill all the Indians.

16 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Name two accusations made against King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella regarding their involvement in the murder of the Tainos Indians. (1) they rewarded Columbus when he returned to Spain with kidnapped Indians – they could have told Columbus to stop the kidnapping (2) when Columbus wrote that the Indians would make excellent slaves, they did nothing to indicate that this was not proper behavior (3) they took no action to stop the Indians from being forced to work in the mines;

17 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Name two accusations made against the Tainos regarding their involvement in the murder of their fellow Tainos. (1)They didn’t kill Columbus and his men before they returned to Spain (2) They were 2000 Spaniards (at the most) and hundreds of thousands of Tainos – it would have been an easy effort to wipe them out.

18 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Bonus Question: King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella agreed to find Columbus’ voyage in April, 1492, just weeks after they demanded that which group had to leave Spain (under the penalty of death)? The Jews (as part of the Spanish Inquisition)

19 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit What were Native Americans’ beliefs about selling land that created huge misunderstandings when negotiating with European settlers? Native Americans believed that no individual or group owned the land and therefore no one could buy it or own it.

20 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Bonus Q: When treaties were written between whites and Native Americans, what did the phrase “as long as the rivers run and the grasses grow” refer to? It referred to the length of how long these treaties would be in effect … that is, FOREVER. In reality, however, treaties were regularly broken by white settlers.

21 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit What argument did Pratt use to convince Spotted Tail to allow his tribe’s children to attend the Carlisle School? Pratt told Spotted Tail that if the Indian children learned English, they could help interpret for the tribal leaders and not get cheated by white settlers any more.

22 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Name 4 ways that students at the Carlisle School were stripped of their cultural identity? (1) cut their hair (2) took away their clothing (3) forbade students from speaking their native language (4) forced them to take new names (5) didn’t let them go home over the summer

23 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit How did Pratt use the “before” and “after” photos of the Carlisle students? As proof that the students could be civilized … that the wild Indians could be transformed into white students.

24 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit How were the values taught at Carlisle different from Native American values? Carlisle teachers taught students to be competitive and to focus on individual success. Native culture focused on people working together for the success of the group or community.

25 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit What was the “outing” system and what was it designed to accomplish? The outing system put Carlisle students in the homes of white families for the summer and was designed to teach them how to work and live in white society. In the end, however, the Indian students were treated as nothing more than servants by the white families.

26 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Pratt’s belief about Indian education can be summed up in 6 words: “ _______ _______ _______, _______ _______ _______.” “Kill the Indian, Save the Man”

27 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Prior to Pratt’s policy, the general belief about Indians was that, “_______ _______ _______ _______ _______ _______ _______ _______” (8 words). “The only good Indian is a dead Indian”

28 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit What did Red Cloud’s men become known as once the supply of buffalo got scarce? “Hang Around the Fort Indians”

29 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit (2-part question) Which Chief defeated Custer at the Battle of Little Big Horn and why did he later have to surrender? Crazy Horse; he had to surrender because there was no more buffalo for his people to live on.

30 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Why do “full bloods” resent “half bloods” on the Pine Ridge Reservation? They believe that “half bloods” get more benefits from the tribal leadership and that “full bloods” are discriminated against.

31 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Bonus Q: What was the effect of the U.S. Government’s “Termination” policy in the 1960s? Indians left the reservations for the city.

32 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit How did AIM’s “Trail of Broken Treaties” march on Washington change the image and reputation of the group? After their march on Washington D.C, where they took over the Bureau of Indian Affairs building, they were seen as much more a militant, hostile group.

33 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit What was the historical significance of the Battle at Wounded Knee? Wounded Knee is where 300 ghost dancers were slaughtered by U.S. troops in the 1890s.

34 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Who is Leonard Peltier and what is he accused of? Peltier is a leader of AIM and was accused of killing a government agent on Pine Ridge in a shootout. He has been in jail since the early 1970s and for many American Indians his trial and sentence are a symbol of blatant injustice.

35 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Bonus Question: In Thunderheart, the character of Tribal Chairperson Jack Milton is meant to resemble what real Pine Ridge Chairperson? Dick Wilson

36 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit In Thunderheart, what does “A.R.M.” stand for? Aboriginal Rights Movement – similar to American Indian Movement

37 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Why does Walter Crow Horse believe that Leo Fast Elk was killed by a fellow Indian? Because of the way that his body was found, laying face down (Sioux believe that it is bad for the spirits to lay a dead body face up)

38 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit In Thunderheart, what makes the livestock (cows and other animals) die on the reservation? The contaminated water (from the uranium drilling that is occurring at the “source”)

39 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit What does it mean to “shapeshift”? To be able to change into another form (for example: from a human to an eagle) … Native Americans believe in the ability to shapeshift (spiritually if not realistically)

40 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Who were the GOONS and what was their purpose? The GOONS were Indians hired (by Dick Wilson, Tribal Chairperson at Pine Ridge Reservation) to harass and intimidate (often by any means necessary) members of A.I.M. (or people thought to support A.I.M).

41 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Bonus Question: What does “G.O.O.N.” stand for? Guardians of the Oglala Nation

42 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit The members of “A.R.M.” are described as … “Traditionalists” (similar to Crazy Horse’s “hostiles” in opposition to the “around the fort Indians”)

43 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Identify two ways in which Chief Illiniwek is seen as inauthentic. (1) His dance is not real, it has been made up over the years by the students who have performed as the Chief (2) the costume is Lakota, not from the Illini tribe

44 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Give three arguments that are offered to “Keep the Chief” (1) it is meant to honor the Illini tribe who was here in Illinois prior to us (2) it is an 81 year tradition at the University of Illinois (3) it is a respectful tradition that is only meant in a honorary way (4) it unites the University of Illinois community

45 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Why did the students create the “Fightin’ Whities” t-shirts? To send a message to a local high school that it was wrong to use the mascot, “The Fighting Reds”

46 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Bonus Q: Students at what college created the “Fightin’ Whities” t-shirts? University of Northern Colorado

47 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit What law, created in 1988, allowed for American Indians to operate casinos on their land? (You get credit if you get the initials for the law) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA)

55 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit What city has had the longest running Columbus Day celebration in the country? Denver, CO

56 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit Why are cities and counties angry that Native American tribes are buying back land with casino riches? The Indians do not have to pay property taxes on the land that they purchase (depriving counties of revenues for schools and other municipal projects).

57 Fauxkooshketball: Native American Unit American Indian and Alaska Native youth (age 15 to 24 years old) are committing suicide at a rate more than ____ times the national average for their age group. Three
