Native Daughters hard copy (pdf)
Produced by NET with partnership with VisionMaker Media, this tells the story of the Ponca people who were forcibly removed from their Nebraska homelands. The "Meaning of Home" project worked with two Ponca youth groups – one in Lincoln, Nebraska and another in White Eagle, Oklahoma – as they explored the theme of the meaning of home in youth media training programs during the summer. The project is a wonderful opportunity that helps address a critical need facing the Native American community – there is a critical lack of curriculum-based media skills being taught in Native education settings.
Developed from the University of Nebraska Medical Center SEPA project Role Models in Your Community poster sets. Native American role models from the United States include environmentalists, radiologists, nurses, doctors, teachers, dentist, agricultural managers, firefighter, astronaut, marine biologist, laboratory technicians, physicists and more. Read why they chose their field and the skills required. College of study, tribal affiliations and their home towns are all interlinked to give the reader a true journey of the role model. A few videos are sprinkled in to for more interaction. Additional pages for each profession include teaching points, suggested books and alignment to Nebraska, South Dakota and American Indian standards. Projected release date is February 2014 and will be available on our website.

The four 4th grade books are Legends of the Name: Buffalo Soldiers in Nebraska; African American Pioneers; Notable Nebraskans; and WWII: Double Victory. http://www.education.ne.gov/nebooks/ebook_library.html
