GRADE LEVEL: 6-12+

 

 

A CONTENT:
An extensive gathering of resources on the history of Native American tribes.

 

A AESTHETICS:
This is a simple site with minimal, well-placed graphics. The color scheme and text layout work very well.

 

A+ ORGANIZATION:
Each of the tribes covered by the site are listed on the home page. Users will find a wealth of information for each tribe on its own page(s). Navigation is done with a link on each page back to the index.

 

A REVIEW:
This site is a gem for anyone interested in Native American History. It is a simply designed two-tier site with a short description of 30 or so tribes, which in turn link to a very detailed and thorough essay on each. It covers tribes from Abenaki to Winnebago, and everything in between. The information here could be used by history teachers looking to supplement lesson plans on Native Americans as well as cultural studies teachers covering the subject. Students researching for reports will also find this site quite useful.
