Homework Help: Native American Literature

Posted by Ann on Sunday, September 18, 2011 at 7:06pm.

How are the tensions of the time of Native American literature (Pre-1600) reflected in American literature?

There were a lot of white people at the time, that looked down on Native Americans. The white people would always try to steal their land and cause harm to their tribes, which started a few wars. But their were a few white people that were kind to Native Americans and would make treaties with them. Those who had treaties with Native Americans would help fend off the white people who wanted to harm them. Then, during the early 1800s, some Native American Literature was discovered. Ethnologist Henry Rowe Schoolcraft published a book about Native American history,etc. This started a chain reaction because slowly other writers would start writing autobiographies about Native Americans, to stories and books. Then they would write about other cultures and topics such as slavery. Now in American Literature, there are a wide variety of reading material containing stories and history of different cultures starring in these books. (Such as Asian Americans, African Americans, Slavery,etc.)





Is my answer historically and legitimately correct and does it answer the question?
