32 Deaf Native Americans, p. 299 For hundreds of years Native Americans, particularly the Plains Indians, have used sign language to communicate. It is certain that American Sign Language borrowed signs from this sign language, similar to the way English speakers borrow words from other languages. The Deaf native American community is proud of their rich legacy of sign languages. The Intertribal Deaf council works hard on behalf of Deaf Native Americans to preserve their unique heritage and promote awareness of their valuable contributions to the Deaf World.

How do you identify yourself? Where is your family from? Your dialogue should include the following: 1.Greetings 2.Discussion of ethnicity/background 3.Plans to meet again 4.A farewell

41 Unit 8 Handicapped or Disabled? Consider the following: Disability = not-able Handicap = anything that makes success more difficult If being “normal” means succeeding in a career or school, starting and raising a family, and actively participating in one’s community, then what does it mean when a Deaf person achieves those goals? What about somone who does not have a disability and doesn’t achieve certain life goals? The word “handicapped” describes a person who is unable to function in relation to some property of the environment. Therefore, someone requiring a wheelchair may or may not be handicapped, depending on whether ramps are available. Using this criteria, who else could be considered handicapped? Do you find the labels Handicapped and Disabled accurate or useful? Why or why not?
