E. A. Wheatley, An Indian Madonna (detail), about 1898
This classroom resource was created for use in social studies lessons, specifically in fourth and fifth grade. The Alabama Course of Study standards and objectives touch briefly on the rich and lengthy history of Native Americans in what is now the state of Alabama. The MMFA, with the help of Mvskoke tribe members, and state historians have created an interactive educators guide that provides more in depth, culturally relevant, and historically accurate information for teachers to supplement their lessons on Alabama history. With an emphasis on social studies and reading literacy each teacher who accesses this resource qualifies for a free set of grade level appropriate books on Native American history for their classroom.
