In the Footprints of Crazy Horse

The text used in this online book study targets grades 5 - 8; 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 the book, In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse by Joseph Marshall III. The primary text follows the heroic deeds of the Lakota leader who took up arms against the US federal government to fight against encroachments on the territories and way of life of the Lakota people, including leading a war party to victory at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. The Essential Understandings Regarding Montana Indians will serve as a guide for critical analysis of In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse. Through readings, examinations of high-quality and authentic literature and teaching materials, participants will explore a variety of literature and professional teaching materials and develop strategies, a lesson plan and a final project for the immediate integration of IEFA into their classrooms.
