6 PagesPromptCeremony and 30 Days: Living on the Navajo Indian Reservation address many issues that Native Americans must still confront today, including, but not limited to, the following: cycles of poverty perpetuated by the reservation system, the exploitation of natural resources on Native lands, and the reality of racism from both outside and within Native communities.For this essay, you will select a topic that interests you, and then compose sustained research paper that incorporates the principles of summary/paraphrase and argumentation developed in the first essay and adds outside research (5-7 pages). Keep in mind that your topic must be specific to a Native American community or communities, and remember that the novel we read and the documentaries we have viewed are only a springboard for thinking about issues facing Native communities; your essay should not reference the novel as a source. Instead, your essay must reference at least 5 nonfiction print sources. Your essay may reference one or more of the documentaries we’ve viewed in this class, but again, the bulk of your research will involve print sources.Possible TopicsLand rights & the exploitation of natural resources (e.g.uranium mining on Southwestern reservations, gold mining in the Black Hills, etc.)Mass incarceration and policing of Native AmericansLack of access to quality K-12 education on reservationsEquity gaps for Native American students in higher educationYou may select your own topic, but you must contact me for topic approval. Please note that poverty is too broad a topic for such a short paper.The following topics are not permitted: alcoholism among Native Americans; unemployment on Native American reservations; poverty on Native American reservations; or the Dakota Access Pipeline.StructureYour essay should include an introduction (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.that introduces the topic and ends with a clearly worded, 1-2 sentence thesis statement.
