Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
I am currently finishing up a master's degree in History, specializing in early American history. (This will be conferred in May 2022.) I recently completed a master's thesis on Lord Dunmore's War, the last Indian War of the colonial period. Throughout that thesis, and in this class, I endeavor to fairly and respectfully portray both Europeans and American Indians. I believe the only way to do this is to spend equal time (as much as possible) understanding both, rather than American Indians being an afterthought. In the face of colonization, they took important measures to show and exert their own agency. This is a big part of why I found it imperative to cover topics like mourning wars, horticulture/land management among American Indians, and the political reasons of the Haudenosaunee for the decisions they made during the intercontinental wars. As the French and English repeatedly learned the hard way, under-appreciating the contributions of American Indian allies was at their own peril.
