Louisiana Indians for Kids

 

Tell me and I'll forget.  Show me and I may not remember.  Involve me and I'll understand.

                  Native American Proverb


 

At one time, it was said that the Native Americans in Louisiana were invisible. Through the tireless efforts of those working to preserve their heritage, the tribes in Louisiana are now officially part of Louisiana's history.

Listed are lessons which will hopefully encourage adults and children to learn about the first people living on the Louisiana land. Though stripped of their property and rights, the Louisiana Native Americans hold the distinct honor of being Louisiana's first inhabitants. The lost land however didn't effect the pride of the state's first inhabitants. Each tribe's history is a now a recognizable part of the state's Social Studies current curriculum. This site offers students lessons to remember to legacy left behind of the first Louisianans.

Within this site, you will find lessons, PowerPoints, links, interactives for elementary and middle school students.  Poverty Point information and tribal information can be found, as well that correlate to the 2008 Louisiana Comprehensive Curriculum.
