The History of Indigenous Resistance Movements

This self-paced online Moodle course targets high school student and adult learners; however, teachers of all grades and content areas will build background knowledge and learn instructional strategies that will facilitate the integration of Indian Education for All. Participants will read and review the Essential Understandings of Montana Indians and access various resources related to the long history of indigenous resistance. All reading and viewing materials will be linked in the course. One exception is the documentary film, 100 Years: One Woman’s Fight for Justice. Every Montana school library should have a copy of the video.

Indigenous peoples around the world have been on the frontlines of conflicts like Standing Rock for centuries. This course brings together the work of Indigenous and allied activists and scholars: anthropologists, historians, environmental scientists, and legal scholars, all of whom contribute important insights into the conflicts between Indigenous sovereignty, civil rights, environmental justice and colonialism.
