How does one object represent a culture? Take any Native American object and critically examine how it represents one specific aspect of culture in which it is created. Preferably it will be an item you have seen in person at one of the venues listed below, but if necessary, can also be an object you chose from other sources. With all museums/galleries now closed, there is NO requirement to visit in person, but I definitely want to know if you did get a chance to see something in person!. You can discuss how the object is representative of a specific ceremony (like the Jump Dance) or a specific theme (such as shamanism, gender, commodification or colonialism) Make sure that you have a clear thesis presenting your argument, and support your thesis with specific facts and analysis drawn from your own insight as well as the following:

Sketch: include a quick sketch of the object; this will help you in giving a thorough description of your subject.

Three required sources: You must use at least 3 academic sources for your paper, all of which should be from scholars in your field of study. Wikipedia, encyclopedic, or anonymous sources/blogs are not acceptable as academic sources!!

***and once you have a source, be sure to post in on the Online Research Forum!!

Style: Chicago, MLA or APA is fine.

The paper can be submitted online. If you can attach pictures, great; if not, that’s okay–I will just be happy you got this in!
