Abstract

Salter, K. M. B. Nihil De Nobis, Sine Nobis: Teaching Minnesota American Indian Literature (2019). For the past nine years, English Language Arts teachers have been required to teach Minnesota American Indian Literature. However, the inclusion of Minnesota American Literature in school curriculum has proved to be difficult for many educators. This capstone project has been created to answer the question, How can Minnesota American Indian Literature, that follows the Minnesota State Standards, be used in a culturally responsive manner to replace literature that is traditionally taught in the classroom? The research for this capstone project in include topics regarding Western literary canon, the importance of Multicultural literature, culturally responsive literature, and the cultural surrounding Minnesota American Indian Literature. This project concludes in the creation of a website meant for educators and students in secondary English Language Arts classroom settings to assist in the learning and discussions surrounding Minnesota American Indian Literature.
