The Weekly Text, 18 November 2022, National Native American Heritage Month Week III: A Reading and Comprehension Worksheet on the Pequot War

In the ongoing observation of National Native American Heritage Month 2022 at Mark’s Text Terminal, this week’s Text is this reading on the Pequot War with its accompanying vocabulary-building and comprehension worksheet.

Between the impending holiday, parent-teacher conferences (tonight and tomorrow), and the generally hectic character of life at the moment, I have little editorially to say about these documents. It’s a surprisingly thorough account of this conflict, which in many respects marks the beginning of the genocide of First Nation inhabitants of this continent. The reading doesn’t call it that, but it also does not scruple to tell the full story here–the theft of land from indigenous peoples.

If you find typos in these documents, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
