I have to write a argment Paper and it is based on Native Americans traditional culture.
I don't know it this is a good thesis: Although Native Americans face challenges, they keep their tradition alive.

    That's not a thesis statement. It's a statement of fact.

    Your thesis statement must include factual information (which you already have) plus your position/opinion/stance. Without your position on the topic, it isn't a true thesis statement. So think of this sentence as the angle you want to take on the topic and what you intend to prove by the end of your paper. (If your statement is simply factual, then there's nothing to prove!)
