TERM PAPER DUE FRIDAY

I’m not so interested in how many pages you write; I’m interested in what you have to say. You choose in which format you wish to write (APA, MLA, Chicago). I’ll be grading on academic and intelligent thought and more so your understanding in your writing. You can question what you’ve been exposed to in this course, but make it critical and not opinionated.

You do not have to answer the questions I posted as the specific requirement; as mentioned above, I want to know what you understand (I do not want you to feel forced to discuss something that you did not understand). 

Write with critical thought, clarity, confidence, critique, (please do not write how something is “interesting” or offer a lot of opinion). Synthesis information from other knowledges if possible (other religions, spiritual practices, philosophies, etc). The course is American Indian so the core of the paper needs to be on American Indian practices and perspectives.
