Native Studies – Letter

Imagine that you are an explorer from the Age of Exploration who has recently landed in America and is writing a letter home. Tell your loved ones about the new world that has been discovered. Your letter must include something about:

  • Geography/size of new lands
  • The indigenous people and how their worldview differs from the European worldview.
  • Gold
  • Glory
  • God
  • Letter should be one full page in length.

Alternately, you can write a letter from the perspective of an Indigenous person, who has just encountered Europeans for the first time. Your information should be largely the same, and account for the differences in values.
